Could the City of Greensboro contract for about 45% less trash for the White Street Landfill?

"Per our discussion, see info below.

2010 total MSW into transfer station and White Street Landfill: about 245,000 tons

2010 MSW tons collected by the city
(includes the sludge going into the landfill now, plus all city collected MSW) = about 145,000 tons

2010 MSW tons collected by private collectors
and carried to the transfer station = about 100,000 tons"

If the landfill contract could be for about 100,000 tons less per year,
why haven't any Greensboro City Council Members
suggested accepting only Greensboro trash?
