Joan Edwards, Los Angeles' new Director of Integrated Solid Waste Management (that's garbage, folks), had been at work for just a week when the City Council last Wednesday approved its ambitious new refuse plan: Within seven years, at least 30% of all city-hauled garbage will be recycled rather than burned or dumped. That means no more tossing kitchen waste, kitty litter, pop bottles, papers and tin cans into one huge plastic bag. Especially not with Edwards around.

Parents and students at Lexington Junior High's annual open house got a glimpse of life in Renaissance England. Teachers and volunteers spent several weeks making costumes and building scenery to transform the Cypress school into Lexingtowne, 1590. Staff members and teachers dressed as kings and queens, jesters and peasants. As parents toured the school, madrigal singers provided background music. Guests were also invited to take part in a maypole dance.

Southern California Gas Co. on Monday announced that its previously wasted heaps of white paper scrap--memos, letters, and assorted bureaucratic leftovers--will be separated and recycled in a model program that officials hope other businesses will imitate. But in fact, such recycling programs are now "very common throughout Los Angeles," said Joan Edwards, director of the city's integrated solid waste management office. "Many paper dealers offer this service. It's their bread and butter."

Re "The Waste Queen" (Dec. 29): As a working mother with six children, my days are very busy without sorting out my trash. Even though I am well aware that we are overflowing our landfills, I can only do so much. I feel people like myself are more the rule than the exception. Who has time to bundle newspapers, take bottles and cans to recycling centers, tie tree branches? Who wants to have trash accumulating in their homes?

America's woodlands will soon be carpeted with delicate bunchberry dogwood flowers -- or maybe not so delicate. A team of scientists has reported that the blossoms explode open in less than 0.5 milliseconds and with 800 times the acceleration experienced by astronauts -- the fastest plant movement on record, making the snap of a Venus' flytrap appear glacial by comparison.
