New Information Resource Available on Recyclingfirst.org

            Citizens for Recycling First has expanded its web site to include dozens of important documents related to coal ash recycling and regulatory proposals that threaten to undo decades of progress in using this important resource.

            Visitors to www.recyclingfirst.org can now click on the “More Info” tab to access a library of downloadable documents.  Documents include key studies and reports, as well as letters from numerous organizations opposing unwarranted and damaging proposals to designate coal ash as “hazardous waste.” More than 160 documents are available now and more will be posted regularly.

            Letters opposing a “hazardous waste” designation are organized for easy reference by the types of authors, including:

·         Federal elected officials

·         State and local elected officials

·         State and local government agencies

·         Professional and trade organizations

·         Industry and labor organizations

“These documents clearly show the extraordinary depth of opposition to efforts by well-funded environmental groups to impose an unfounded ‘hazardous waste’ label on coal ash,” said Citizens for Recycling First Chairman John Ward. “Elected and appointed, Democrat and Republican, industry and labor – people from every state have spoken out about what a bad idea a ‘hazardous waste’ designation would be for our environment and economy.  Don’t take my word for it.  Look at the documents we are providing and see for yourself.”
