“Thank you for visiting the web site of BURNT, a 26 year old, volunteer citizens group based in Nashville, Tennessee. We work on solid waste, environmental justice, safe schools and public buildings, and pervasive chemicals. Although our main interest is landfills, recycling, and composting, BURNT is essentially a land use group. We helped turn Nashville into a modern city by closing multiple chronic polluters which allowed positive development such as expansion of Metro Center and building the Symphony Hall. Landfills throughout Tennessee have hurt people and neighborhoods which are close to these landfills. We always work through government channels. If you would like an idea of how we work, please go to TASK FORCE . To review our history, please go to PROGRAM for our 25th Anniversary.
