Is anyone really surprised that this project actually is stil proceeding?
As a natural consequence of driving up compliance costs, haulers have
been forced to build bigger and bigger facilities; the shere volume of
money that went into this project's site work alone ensured that someone
was going to eventually get it permitted.

As far as recycling goes, landfill rates only affect effective recovery
at the margin--material that is undercut by cheap tipping fee is usually a
money losing grade anyway.
