Importing Trash

According to the NC Conservation Network:
"North Carolina is becoming a hot spot for other states to dump their trash.
"Compared to MidAtlantic and Northeastern states, our land is cheap, we lack a state disposal charge, and numerous NorthCarolina communities are desperate for new sources of revenue........The problem with importing trash is that it is a short term revenue fix for these communities. It does not get to the heart of economic woes in these counties - but it does saddle each community that hosts a landfill with a potentially expensive, future environmental problem."
