Would you be in favor of converting garbage to a public utility?

No. Government is terribly inefficient and the costs would go up. I know of a city that did this and the dumping fees went from $6 per ton to $100 per ton and still had to be subsidized.

Well yeah that's probably true. I think it would solve some issues though. Make some of the greenies shut up make some extra power get rid of landfills.

It actually caused illegal dumping to skyrocket because when it used to be affordable for most anyone to dump it wasn't worth the time to dump illegally. The tremendously higher costs made it worth the extra time for a lot of people.

We could then increase recycling and use the majority of the rest of the refuse for a waste to energy program reducing the use of landfills
