We have been reporting on these developments in these cities for the past few months. Within hours of each other the two proposed facilities were rejected.  In Houston the newly elected mayor took action. In Indianapolis the court settled the fate of the proposed dirty materials recovery facility (MRF) plan.

The Campaign for the Environment was active in Houston, while the Indiana Recycling Coalition was active in Indianapolis and their good work has led to these important developments.

Stay tuned, ILSR will provide more details on developments in Indianapolis through an interview with Carey Hamilton, Executive Director, Indiana Recycling Coalition.
