T.O. Trash Convoys Head to Michigan
By JACK BOLAND, TORONTO SUN

Hogtown garbage trailers, westward ho-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Trucks that once hauled garbage north to Vaughan's Keele Valley landfill
daily since 1983, finally started their westward trek to Sumpter Township,
Mich., yesterday at 7 a.m.

The daily 900-km round-trip journey will see 130 tractor-trailers loaded
with 33 tonnes of Toronto's garbage travel to Wayne County's Carleton
Farms, a half-hour drive south of Detroit. That is roughly 23,750 tonnes
weekly -- or 1.2 million tonnes a year...
