Burning trash -- should Michigan ban it?

Well that did not take long. The governor and the state have backed off on a proposed ban on burning of trash.

There will be hearings on the topic later this summer. Also, there is a bill in the House to kill the ban.

Those who oppose burning say, rightly, that burning trash stinks, releases harmful gases and lowers air quality.

Those who favor burning say it is the only inexpensive alternative to some rural residents. And, that those who do not burn, will likely dump their unwanted trash along the side of the road.

If you have an opinion, you should let Gov. Rick Snyder know how you think.

To to and send him an email.
