Subject: Re: Most serious type of pollution (Patrick Meyeres)

April 27, 1999

Dear Patrick Meyeres,

The most serious type of pollution is different than the most unrecycled material which could be recycled. The most serious pollution comes from hazardous wastes such as mercury in air or water, lead in soil, trichloroethylene or trichloroethane or toluene or other TRI chemicals in landfills or industrial sites leaching to water sources or running off into rivers via rainfall.

The most under-recycled materials are probably household batteries.
