The Heap

BP = Burying Petroleum?

Another report, this time from CNN, confirming what we all already suspected: oil collected on the Gulf's coasts is winding up in nearby landfills. This time, it's the Pecan Grove Landfill in Harrison County, Miss., owned by Waste Management. It's one of nine landfills BP has contracted with to accept spill waste, despite voluble objections from the communities surrounding them. True to form, BP declines to comment on the story, leaving a Waste Management rep to cover on their behalf.
