Dear Mr. Senator

The heads of the two leading solid waste associations have written a letter to Congress stating that electronic products can be safely disposed of in a Subtitle D landfill. Bruce Parker, president and CEO of the National Solid Wastes Management Association (NSWMA), Washington, and John Skinner, executive director and CEO of the Solid Waste Association of North America (SWANA), Silver Spring, Md., addressed the letter to U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D. Thune is the chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee's Superfund and Waste Management Subcommittee.

Parker and Skinner write that “a number of inaccurate statements were made” during the subcommittee's recent hearing on electronic waste. “We assure you that electronic products can be safely managed in [Subtitle D] facilities,” Parker and Skinner say. To view the letter, visit www.nswma.org.
