This letter is written to register disapproval of the building of the Recontek hazardous-waste recycling plant in Oceanside, particularly at the site near Benet and Carpenter roads in the Roymar Industrial Park. Despite the reassurance from Recontek that the plant is environmentally safe, it is feared that poisons may be released into the atmosphere, such as benzene, arsenic and cyanide. The ocean breezes may carry these poisons directly over us, harming the health of our children and ourselves.
