Baltimore City Council approves air standards bill that could shut trash incinerators

The Baltimore City Council approved a bill Monday applying stringent emissions limits on the city’s biggest source of industrial air pollution, a step that could end the burning of trash across the region without a plan for how to pay for sending more waste to landfills.
