Question: The trash has got to go somewhere, right?
Answer: Wrong! Central Texas has more than enough landfill space for several decades in Travis and Williamson Counties alone!
Question: We should take care of our own trash, right?
Answer: Wrong! The garbage that this landfill would take in will NOT be from Caldwell County residents, but from all over Texas, the United States and even garbage from outside the United States! Texas is becoming an international dumping ground!
Question: This landfill will be good for the county as it will create jobs, right?
Answer: Wrong! When you consider the few jobs this landfill will generate compared with the number of jobs that the county will lose out on because business owners will not want to locate in the vicinity of a dump… it’s a bad deal for everyone.
