Although recycling is popular, it can solve only part of the problem, Roodzant said.

Your Thanksgiving Day editorial "They Wait" was very timely and a matter of deep reflection in our home. Two years ago, during the holiday season, we learned of the plight of two abused, "hard-to-place" children who were wards of the county and in need of assistance. Their widowed maternal grandmother, designated a foster parent, was working full time and not able to give them the immediate attention and family environment they so much needed and deserved. She certainly wasn't prepared to take responsibility for them over the long term.

The state Waste Management Board and the cities of Duarte and Bell will sponsor a conference today and Friday at the Holiday Inn in Monrovia on recycling and composting alternatives for waste disposal.

Gov. George Deukmejian has signed into law a measure that clears the way for construction of a $66-million trash-to-energy plant on Terminal Island. The project, known as the Southeast Resource Recovery Facility, had become caught in a political struggle between the state Waste Management Board and Los Angeles County. Under state law, the board cannot approve projects in counties that do not have updated waste plans, and Los Angeles County has not yet adopted a new plan.

Litter along roadways in California, the nation's most populous state, has increased 24% in the last decade and the problem is likely to worsen, a new state study says. Conducted for the California Waste Management Board by the Institute for Applied Research, the study said California is spending much less than many states on programs to reduce roadside litter. "Unless action is taken, California is going to get filthier each year as our population and traffic increase," the study said.

Recycling may help, but it cannot solve the garbage crisis in Los Angeles County, Sherman Roodzant, chairman of the state Waste Management Board, told a waste disposal conference in Monrovia last week. Roodzant said trash incineration plants and landfills will be needed to handle the area's trash, even though those alternatives are not as popular as recycling.

Kudos to Barbara D. Cummings for her poignant illustration accompanying Forest Tennant's article, "The Offal Predicament: No Place to Put Garbage" (Opinion, July 12). Cummings captures the true dilemma facing Angelenos over trash. No one wants it. Los Angeles County and outlying cities don't want garbage from the city of Los Angeles. The city doesn't want its own garbage. Cities in the San Gabriel Valley are tired of being "dumped on" by the rest of the county. Westside residents don't want any more garbage burned or buried in their backyards either.
