Another waste disposal option

From CCM Magazine:

Stamford has become the first Connecticut municipality to adapt of new method of trash disposal.

Its waste, approximately 1,200 tons a week, is being shrink-wrapped in plastic and shipped to an Ohio landfill under a contract with a New Jersey company, Transload America, Inc.

The city is paying about $69 a ton for the service, in the first year, compared to the $80 a ton it had been paying for disposal at the waste-to-energy plant in Bridgeport

I'd still like to increase recycling, regardless of where our trash goes.
