After following this garbage truck on the highway I got to thinking how far trash travels to sit in landfills. It has become more apparent after being in Geneva and living closer to a landfill because not only are there more 16-wheelers hauling trash up and down 5 and 20, but the roads are in much worse conditions. It seems ironic that we go through all the troubles just to get rid of something that we created in the first place. With the rise in gas prices, something tells me that the price we are going to pay to continue to get rid of our trash is just going to get higher and higher.
