Redefining Trash


By defining coal as a solid waste, the town of Babylon, Long Island is able to tap into sanitation funds to give its residents cash upfront for energy-efficient renovations.  The Times reports:

A few weeks ago the Chamberses became the first residents in Babylon to have energy-efficient improvements completed.

Any of Babylon’s 65,000 homeowners who qualify can receive up to $12,000 worth of energy-efficient work done by employees that the town contracts with.

Very cleaver, Babylonians.
