2010’s Top 10 Waste Age.com Articles via WIH Resource Group, Inc.

In Waste Age’s recent online edition of their weekly Waste Age WIRE newsletter, they presented 10 of the most popular articles posted on www.WasteAge.com in 2010 and five of the most read entries published on The Heap, their staff-written blog on the site, last year.
