n.— «The company wants to build a materials reclamation facility (a “murf,” in waste parlance) that would allow it to mechanically sort and process vast amounts of debris. Then Potomac would mine the landfill’s contents for salvageable material that can be run through the murf and sold.» —“Moving a Mountain” by Nick Miroff Washington Post May 13, 2007.
