Before I get a lecture from the Dawg, I will admit that this isn't a Southern Mexico story but CB doesn't really have an appropriate section for Mexico City.

"Mexico City’s largest landfill shut down on Monday, part of a planned shift to recycle more of the city’s garbage, but the green effort left piles of trash across the city. With locals complaining, garbage truck drivers counter that they’re unable to move as much trash as before since they’re having to drive farther to get rid of it.

The new system requires drivers to haul their trash 3 to 4 hours away from downtown, whereas previously it only took an hour. “The trucks take a while to get there,” driver Joel Gara Murillo told the city’s Canal 11 TV station.

On top of that, long lines have formed at the new transfer stations while the drivers and station workers get used to the new system."
