Emptying landfills faster #0652
Updated: 3/15/01 OS/platforms(s): All Versions: All

Contributor/author(s): SimJeff

I for one dislike landfills, they're big and stinky. Usually I pay a neighbour to take my garbage until incinerators become available. However, this can be costly. If you decide to build landfills instead they can be emptied quickly once recycling plants become available. When the recycling facility becomes available, build a few, leaving your landfill still connected to road or rail. The recycling plant will recycle some of the garbage in the landfill, reducing its load. The empty tiles can then be dezoned.

However, this will not (in my experience at least) completely empty a landfill, but it beats waiting for them to decompose by themselves.
