Regional recycling

Now, it is suggested, local governments in Wauwatosa, Waukesha and Milwaukee should hold hands and sing the Regional Cooperation theme song over the chance to recycle old beer cans and newspapers in a single facility.

Which fight will be bigger? The one among the three governments to put the recycling center in another community because of noise and traffic concerns? Or the one among the three governments to host the facility because none of them want to pay the exhorbitant costs to send hundreds of trucks 20 or 30 miles to each day to drop off old newspapers?

I bet it'll go in Tosa, because they're looking to build a new facility anyway since theirs burned down, plus they're located right between Milwaukee and Waukesha so it'd be the most convienient for all to access. (I'm actually an urban planning intern working directly on the project, so let me know if you want any details!)

Don't you see where this is going?
