After burning, wouldn't there still be glass in the ash? And other
than being bad to breath, and irritating to the skin, is fiberglass all
that toxic? I would think that in a landfill, fiberglass would sit
fairly benignly, neither escaping into the nearby air/water/soil not
especially damaging anything else. I've never thought of fiberglass as
an especially potent or dangerous toxin.
