But if we created a Waste to Energy facility there, which we could easily do at no direct cost to the municipality, in fact they would profit from it, we could create employment too! A plant that consumes 500 tonnes of waste per day then produces 3MWH of energy as well as viable bi-products! All completely doable using external financial resources!
