In parlor 1-9 p.m. By Charles Bosworth Jr. Of the Post-Dispatch Staff While officials debate the best way to recycle trash in Madison County, one company is planning a $600,000 recycling center in Roxana. Laidlaw Waste Systems Inc. announced Monday that it would build a center that would enable the county to meet the state requirement to recycle 25 percent of its trash by July 1996. Laidlaw, the largest trash hauler and recycling company in the county, will open the center this fall at its landfill and compost site off Old Alton-Edwardsville Road in Roxana. Larry Giroux, senior division manager for Laidlaw in St. Louis, said the center could handle 50 tons of material a day as soon as it opens. He said it will be what is called a "clean" center, meaning it will accept only material that already has been separated into categories. That includes glass, newspapers, aluminum cans, plastic milk and two-liter soda bottles, cardboard and office paper. The center will handle material picked up by Laidlaw and will accept material brought in by the public. Giroux said more than a third of the residents in the county already separate material for curbside pick up. He said some county officials believe a recycling program that does not require separation, called a "dirty" program, would be a step backward. But County Board member Tony Bosich, D-Wood River, disagreed. He said Monday that Laidlaw's center would not deter plans for a dirty center in the Wood River area. Bosich and other officials in Wood River support a dirty center and are seeking more cities to join such a program. Bosich said was confident the Norton Environmental Company would proceed with its plans for an $8 million dirty center as soon as more cities are recruited. Bosich said he favored Norton's plans to build a center similar to one it has in Ohio. Giroux said Laidlaw has doubled its commercial recycling program in Madison County since last fall. He said building the center made sense because the county needs to meet the recycling goal set by the state. Laidlaw has provided trash hauling and recycling in the county for nine years. Nationally, it is the third-largest solid waste company, and the largest to handle hazardous waste. IndeX-Alexander, M. Moss Jr. Aubuchon Bay, Philip E. Behnken, Made E. "Miller" Beller, Leo J.

Episcopalian Treasurer Accused Of Embezzling NEW YORK (AP) The treasurer of the Episcopal Church embezzled $2.2 million and spent it on new homes, travel, jewelry and tuition for her children while the financially embattled denomination was slashing staff and programs, the church said Monday. Ellen F. Cooke, who resigned in January, was able to divert the money between February 1990 and January in part because she had control over auditing and, in violation of church policies, filled out check request forms and signed them herself, Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning said. "It would be difficult for me to describe the sense of betrayal that I have felt over these last few months," Browning said. Church officials said Cooke had not been charged with a crime and was cooperating in the investigation and recovery of the embezzled money. Church officials have yet to decide whether to press charges. Cooke, who had been treasurer for eight years and earned more than $120,000 a year, said she had "significant differences" with the auditor's report but was determined to repay any money used inappropriately. "I am experiencing deep remorse and regret for the pain and grief my actions have caused my family, friends, co-workers and the general church," she said in a statement. Cooke also said that, in the opinion of her psychiatrist, she had experienced a breakdown caused by pressures of work. Browning said the church has secured title to two properties owned by Cooke and her husband, the Rev. Nicholas Cooke, an Episcopal priest in McLean, and is trying to sell them. The church also has filed a claim on a $1 million insurance policy that could help recoup losses, Browning said. The revelations of the misuse of funds come at a time of lessening support from the pews for the church's national programs. The denomination, which has 2.5 million members, has cut its national office staff by about a third in the past four years, and this year's budget of $42.6 million represents more than a $3.6 million decline from last year. Browning said Cooke had embezzled $2.2 million. Browning said about $1.5 million had been diverted from church accounts at a bank in Washington and a brokerage in New York to personal accounts maintained by Ellen Cooke at both institutions.
