Neighbor Burning Trash – Eco-Fail

Submitted by on Thursday, 1 October 2009No Comment

2_mugs52My neighbor throws all of their “paper” trash into their backyard burn barrel and the smell is horrendous, especially when there is plastic in the trash. I can get a headache for hours, and the EPA says that “Open burning of household waste in barrels is potentially one of the largest sources of airborne dioxin and furan emissions in the United States.” Yikes! I’ve asked the neighbors to stop nicely and they aren’t friendly about my request. It isn’t legal to stoke up burn barrels in my state of NY, but how does one turn in and threaten a neighbor? Eco-Fail.
