CLEVELAND – In just seven weeks Ohio Citizen Action members and friends sent 1,457 letters and telewires to Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson urging him to scrap plans for a garbage incinerator at the Ridge Road Transfer Station and instead focus on recycling and composting.  Cleveland citizens and hundreds of neighbors from the surrounding suburbs including Lakewood, Brecksville, North Olmsted, Cleveland Heights, Bay Village, Solon, Chagrin Falls, Euclid, and Brunswick Hills have all written letters to Mayor Jackson.
