About this book

Early in 1987, a trash-laden barge from Long Island set out to unload its cargo far from the community that had created it. Written by journalists, for government officials, planners and anyone concerned with the environment, this is the story of how, five months and two continents later, the barge had become an extraordinary symbol of the mounting garbage crisis.
