BURNT spends time at the legislature on general matters—the impact of landfilling, how to create jobs from recycling, and how local numbers are inaccurate. These letters illustrate our written approach, which is sometimes too technical.
25 June Government Operations Letter—concerns a request to review past rule decisions including the a Rule 0462 passed in December 2012, the Solid Waste Plan, and other concerns.
