The Nation

May 15, 1987

A barge load of 3,100 tons of unwanted garbage will be hauled back to Long Island, from where it set sail, for unloading and burial, the operators of the tugboat pulling the barge said. The barge, which has been on a seven-week, 6,000-mile search for a site to dump its contents, was turned away by at least six states and three foreign countries. The barge, containing garbage from New York City, Nassau County and the town of Islip, was reported just off the coast of Hatteras, N.C.
