None of this attempt to separate out the greenwaste has made much sense to me.  I often see yard people back up to the regular chute any time it is open, and dump their greenwaste.  The guard sits way off to the side in his truck and can't see what's going on anyway.

I agree with you, it doesn't make much sense that the county allows some
dumping of green waste into the landfill.  It's not in keeping with their ZERO WASTE campaign.  But, without some green waste dumping, illegal dumping along the sides of the road will be an even larger problem than it already is.

Also, green waste is better in the landfill than plastic waste as it breaks down, so if we're throwing plastic waste down the chute in any form, it's much worse than green waste.  Mary Vandamme
