Any potential flow-control measure would only include solid waste and not recyclables, according to the newspaper.
The county had sought to open a landfill, but community opposition stalled its plans and no site was ever found. The agency incurred millions of dollars of debt in environmental studies and other studies from that failed attempt, the newspaper reported.
The flow-control measure would likely start discussion of a new landfill again, the newspaper reported.
Steve Changaris, regional manager for the National Solid Wastes Management Association, wrote a letter to the newspaper, opposing any flow-control measure, saying it would create a monopoly and drive down quality due to a lack of competition.
