I read with interest the three-part series on garbage collection, recycling and disposal ("Dollar Politics: The Rising Cost of Garbage," March 29-31). These stories seem to be trying through innuendo to find something dishonest or illegal in the way organizations involved in the solid-waste industry conduct their day-to-day activities. You were able to point out two instances in which rubbish haulers and disposers were found guilty of transgressions, but that is far too little to convict an industry of wrongdoing.

Infuriated environmentalists on Wednesday accused Gov. George Deukmejian of betraying them--and possibly breaking the law--by appointing an Orange County retiree from the can industry to a post reserved by law for an environmentalist on a new state board created to promote recycling. Deukmejian's announcement that he appointed John E.

Faced with environmentalists' outrage and Senate rejection, Gov. George Deukmejian on Wednesday abandoned his nomination of an Orange County can industry retiree to a high-paying state post reserved by law for an environmentalist. John E. Gallagher of Orange was scheduled to appear before the Senate Rules Committee on Wednesday afternoon for a public hearing on his nomination to a $90,852-a-year "nonprofit environmental protection" slot on the new California Integrated Waste Management Board.

Nobody involved in the current brouhaha over John E. Gallagher would suggest that the retired can industry executive from Orange is a radical environmentalist. "I'm not out there driving stakes in redwood trees and chaining myself to rocks on wild rivers," quipped the 75-year-old former public affairs manager for the Continental Can Corp.

Gov. George Deukmejian Wednesday appointed former Ventura City Councilwoman Nan J. Drake to a $90,852-a-year post on a new state board created to promote recycling. Her appointment is subject to confirmation by the state Senate. Drake, who in 1989 lost her council seat as voters swept three environmental candidates into office, was Deukmejian's second choice to fill the "nonprofit environmental protection" post on the new California Integrated Waste Management Board.

In a victory for environmentalists, the Senate Rules Committee on Monday voted 3 to 2 to reject the appointment of former Ventura City Councilwoman Nan J. Drake to the California Integrated Solid Waste Management Board. Unless Gov. George Deukmejian withdraws the nomination, the full 40-member Senate is scheduled to vote today on Drake's appointment to the $90,852-a-year post. Drake hesitated to predict the outcome of today's Senate vote but voiced some hope that she could salvage the job.

Only one thing was missing Thursday afternoon when California Waste Management Board officials toured Lopez Canyon Landfill to prepare for a hearing today on the dump's operating permit: the trash. Little patches of household garbage at the top of the Los Angeles city dump were being neatly covered with dirt. A few stray papers wafted here and there, but landfill workers swiftly snapped them up with spike-tipped poles. "That mountain you see on your left is 1.1 million tons of trash," said John de la Rosa, landfill manager and official tour guide.

Faced with mounting opposition in a Senate confirmation fight, former Ventura City Councilwoman Nan J. Drake on Tuesday resigned her $91,000-a-year seat on the California Integrated Waste Management Board. The resignation, effective Dec. 31, was announced on the Senate floor by Republican Senate Leader Ken Maddy of Fresno, capping a bewildering series of events that left even veteran lawmakers and staffers shaking their heads.

Members of the California Waste Management Board said Friday that they sympathized with the complaints of residents who live near Lopez Canyon Landfill, but added that it would be impossible to meet the demands of some to close the dump. The remarks came after a public hearing on a city of Los Angeles request to renew a permit to operate the landfill, the city's only public waste dump. A decision on the permit is expected at the board's next meeting July 13 and 14 in Sacramento, board officials said.
