    How can these political criminals come out with a practical proposal suggested by grw1 when they are worried about only making money and not service?

    As amusing as it may sound to some ppl sending garbage to the north sounds exactly like something our politicians might come up with! In keeping with grw1`s suggestion there are ways to tie up garbage incineration to generate power. It might be a way to help our power situation and I wish someone would look into the feasibility of such a project.

    Well I`m not sure if it`s beneficial in the long run. I guess the private contractors would benefit for sure but not the country as a whole. Already off state land fills in Ohio and Virginia are refusing to accept garbage from the 5 boroughs in New York City and you may also be aware that other states do send their garbage to New York (mostly land fills in upstate NY). So it`s more like an `inter-state garbage swap` program. And logistical costs also run pretty high. Anyways... maybe I missed a point you were trying to make in your original post -

    Why send it to the North? Why not somewhere in the South, East, Central or even a site on the West? (Will cost less to transport for sure.)

    And would piling ones muck in someone else`s yard truly solve the question? (as seen in cases in the US where there are serious environmental issues in some of the off state land fills).

    I have to agree that we need land fills to deal with the amount of trash the cities generate but while doing so why not try to come up with a solution that has long term benefits? Dumping garbage elsewhere will surely take your mind off it for today but I`m pretty sure that years down the road someone will have to deal the after effects. After all it`s our country, be it North, South, East or West and coming up with a long term solution will no doubt help in our development.
