About two weeks ago, I reached out to the EPA inquiring about Waste Management’s environmental track record.[cleeng_content id="289181210" description="Why stop now? It's just getting interesting!" price="0.99" referral="0.10"]For those unaware, there’s nine (I think) EPA regions… So for those areas where WM doesn’t provide their services, you’d expect my regional inquiry to fall short (see below).
According to the FOIA Officer in Seattle, my inquiry “broke her computer.”
No, I shit you not. Those were her exact words.
Refining my inquiry, I directed my updated request to the folks in DC, where I’m still awaiting the data.
One bit of feedback I received — “I enjoy your site, but you are always changing things up.” Guilty. As I have indicated, MAOS is an ongoing collaborative experiment between technology and activism. In other words, this f***er is living and growing.
And with growing comes growing pains – aka the occasional software defect (bug). So, for those times my code blows (sometimes quiet often), take a moment and open a support ticket. I’d be appreciative of your help.
