But photographs recently taken at TVI's Irvine facility by Ferguson's wife, Amy, clearly show trash-strewn piles of curbside waste. "TVI claims it's just going to do clean green waste," Ferguson said. "But everything they're doing shows it will not be a clean green facility. As a member of the U.S. Composting Council, I know a large percentage of composters, and they wouldn't even think of siting a facility like this next to a reservoir . . . The level of contamination is too high."
