Saving money by spending it may sound like the punch line of a joke, Bristol, Virginia city leaders are dead serious that $1 million worth of improvements to the city landfill has already created substantial savings. A new, wider access road down into the large, city-owned waste facility was made by city workers using waste from the old landfill. The new road allows large trucks to drive down into the site to dump refuse, rather than have city crews transfer the trash into smaller trucks for dumping. The design change should save almost $500,000 per year while increasing waste acceptance traffic.
