Dear Fellow LSCN'er,

I wanted to let you know about an issue that is very important to me. In January of 2003, Toronto closed its last landfill, and now sends all of its trash to landfills around Michigan. Over 6 million cubic tons of trash from Canada ends up in Michigan landfills each year. Recently, the Toronto city council approved a contract to ship thousands of tons of raw sewage to Michigan for disposal.

That's why I've joined U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow's fight to stop Canadian trash now! Under an existing international agreement, the U.S. government has the power to stop these shipments -- but only if the EPA enforces the treaty. I've signed an online petition to urge the new EPA Administrator to begin enforcing the treaty immediately and stop the Canadian trash and sewage sludge at the border.

You can sign the online petition by visiting Senator Stabenow's website at http://stabenow.senate.gov/stoptrash. I hope you'll take a moment and join me in this fight to protect our state from foreign trash and sewage.

======================================================

Please encourage your friends and family to visit http://stabenow.senate.gov/stoptrash and sign the online petition today!

Thanks for your help! I'm confident that, working together, we can stop Canadian trash now!

Sincerely,
Debbie Stabenow
United States Senator

Thanks from me too......Hammer.

Driving westbound I-94 every morning I get to see the tremendous number of "Wilson Logistics" trucks hauling that stupid trash to our privately owned landfills. It's the greed of the owners and their lobbyists in Lansing that is stopping our elected lawmakers from putting a stop to this abuse of out natural resources. A political contribution goes a long way in the wrong hands. I agree that trash disposal is important, but come on now, free trade agreement, import garbage? Also, contact your local politicians about this problem.

Done Hammer, as environmental manager at the company that I work at it ticks me off big time. I spend as lot of time and energy reducing our waste stream and now Canada sends us more trash GRRRRRRRR. It is all about the money Canada has a lot of unused space for their own trash

Doesn't make much since. Canada seems to have so much more
unoccupied territory so why send it to us??? I guess it always comes down to money and politics!!!

Sh!t, I'm Canadian and I don't want it in my backyard so I feel the same way you do.

If they are making it, they can keep it up there too!
