Waste Task Force a General Assemblyappointed committee named to study growing waste disposal problems will unveil Monday morning a sweeping set of rec ommendations that will bring a new thrust to environmental protection if they become law The 21page report to be released at 10 am in the Blatt Building will call for establishment of a Solid Waste Policy Board and a reduction in landfill mass by as much as 25 percent mainly through mandatory recycling The package also includes a variety of surcharges that would be imposed on landfill users The surcharges would have a dual effect furnishing

working together But the senator added It is a fact that we are fast running out of time Ev ery day there is a new story about landfiU problems in the northeast and those peo ple are awash in this
