    We are organizing with some people from Harvard GSD a visit to the landfill where the ashes of Cambridge waste is deposited. What is seems to be an old quarry: the Landfill Wheelabrator Saugus Inc. Ash Landfill. Cambridge’s Trash is burnt in the waste incinerator plant beside it. The purpose of the visit is to make an aerial photography of the andfill. Maybe the first of a long row of aerial landfill photography? We will be using the experience and tools from PLOTS. We find specially interesting to be able to track dumping sites.
