Back in November, I blogged about the enormous amount of trash and debris that continues to be hauled out of New Orleans. But it's not just here. Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma punk'd pretty much the whole US Gulf Coast last year, creating a steady stream of demolition and construction debris that will not abate for many months.
Government Executive magazine recently caught up with the situation and gives a lengthy and thorough analysis of the problem in a story called, "Agencies tackle massive Gulf Coast waste removal challenge." As an engineer, I found the article interesting, although I suppose this is not going to be the typical response.
I was amused to note they follow my lead and use a football stadium analogy to help the reader visualize the enormous volume of debris involved.
