Supreme Court Rules in Favor of Municipal Landfills




The Supreme Court ruled that Municipalities have the right to force trash haulers to deliver municipal waste to government owed facilities in United Haulers Assn., Inc. v. Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Management Authority.  United Haulers argued that this right goes against interstate commerce.  The court ruled that municipalities may favor government owened facilities but cannot force haulers to dump at any particular privately owed facility.
