What are the benefits? Is there a cost savings?

Delivering materials to the landfill is expected to avoid escalating processing costs due to the low value of material and high contamination rates. While this change may not be the most desirable manner of handling these materials, under the current conditions, it is the best option for the City of Deerfield Beach at this time and until other potential alternatives can be identified or which time there has been significant and sustained improvements to market conditions.
