    His last hours in the Coconino County Jail were taken up with writing letters to friends. Then, he put his last will and testament, written in jail a week earlier, into a manila envelope and scribbled a note to have it delivered to his attorney.

Except for aluminum cans, no one wants the sorted trash items. Is this bad for the environment? Probably not. I checked with Dr. Daniel Benjamin of Clemson University (and the PERC Center for Free Market Environmentalism) and he says: First, don’t worry that the trash going into our landfills will take over too much of the land area.
