My county has to pay the next county over a hefty sum of money to put our trash in their landfill, because we filled ours up and have no room for another.
We have a fairly robust recycling program. Mixed stream recyclables can be dropped off at multiple locations for free. It's encouraged... because recycling can be done in-county. Waste disposal cannot.
