Abstract
During the late 1970's the Love Canal hazardous waste site in New York State, U.S.A. became a benchmark for negative feelings towards the siting of future hazardous waste landfills and facilities. There is growing anxiety being shown by the public about the location of waste facilities, and especially for hazardous materials. There is an increasing need for the communication of disposal information to the community as well as their inclusion in the decision making process.
