Q: How to keep fossil fuel production down? EPR is great except for clauses that allow for the conversion of plastic waste to fuel. These clauses are written in by the plastic industry to allow for the continuation of the expansion of plastic production.

This idea is a great idea for more than just waste production! For example, those who build roads and buildings should be responsible for them for at least 20 years. Much less waste

Q: is there a lab you use to identify waste composition / toxicity? I have many pounds of shredded rubber that has been washing up on a beach at Hammonasset Beach State Park that I would like to determine its original product source as well as toxic 6PPD content.
