Where else are you going to put the trash? Want to hold onto it at your house? There's only so many places for a dump. It's either continue garbage at the same place you already have garbage, or create some new spot for it all! Of course costs will end up going up to pay for a new location also. No one wants a dump in their backyard, but it has to be someplace.
