Re-thinking Trash: Columnist Green Gets Close to the Problem

Tulsans throw away far too much.

We say this based on a visit to the Tulsa landfill, where we saw old computers, appliances and other pieces of junk being bulldozed under the dirt.To our untrained eyes, this didn't look economical or safe. 

This helps explain our interest in Tulsa World columnist Wayne Green's piece Sunday on the trouble with Tulsa's landfill and Tulsans' proclivity for throwing out far too much. It's an informative and thoughtful piece, well worth consideration.

It sounds like time for the city to reconsider its trash policies. Read Green's column here.
