NEW JERSEYANS AND THE ENVIRONMENT PART I – SOLID WASTE: PUBLIC RECOGNIZES AND RESPONDS TO CRISIS – SUPPORTS TRASH SEPARATION; RECYCLING UP
New Jerseyans are rallying in response to the state’s solid waste crisis. The vast majority of citizens recognize the problem as a very serious one, they enthusiastically endorse strong measures to ease the situation, and recycling in New Jersey homes has risen sharply in just the last six months.
The public phase of the Iran-Contra affair has ended with a majority of New Jerseyans believing that laws were broken, many feeling their President lied about his knowledge of the affair, and with substantial damage being done to Ronald Reagan’s image as a strong leader.
