[GreenYes] Transfer/Long-Haul Costs

A question for the system economics gurus out there:

I'm looking for information any of you might have on the costs involved with
transferring or long-hauling solid waste.  Specifically, I'm wondering if
anyone has ever documented the effects, on a community, of a local landfill
closure and how/if the subsequent transfer and long-haul of that waste has
altered the community's cost of waste management.  

It seems like conventional wisdom that transferring waste for long-haul
will, more times than not, increase the costs of waste management.  I'm just
wondering if anyone has any empirical data, recent studies, etc. that
demonstrates the concept.
