[greenyes] Waste volume/weight ratio.
Hi,
Can anyone tell me what the "typical" waste volume/weight ratio is. Say for a 
standard pile of U.S.A. garbage excluding the C&D. How many cubic yards would 
a ton of MSW take up after being collected in a standard truck if there is 
such a thing as a standard truck.  How many tons would occupy ten or one 
hundred cubic yards? I'm trying to estimate landfill life expectancy under 
various scenarios. Thanks,
