cost of landfilling in the USA? >>


The Environment Industries Association, National Solid Waste Management
Association generally does a good job in tracking that.

Contact: Chaz Miller, 202-364-3742 to get right contact person at NSWMA.

BTW, in California San Jose probably has the highest landfill tax: $13/ton,
followed by Alameda County Waste Management Authority, Source Reduction and
Recycling Board: $6/ton (levied by voter initiative, Measure D in 1989).
