Something's Missing Here
I don't get it. Why would Fortuna and Arcata be diverting less trash from the landfills than Eureka? It says here that Arcata's been diverting over 50% since 2003 and Fortuna's been diverting 60% since 2005. Why would Eureka fall behind?
I can't help but think it's more than just the collection process in Eureka. I'm wondering if it's because more people use the Eureka transfer station for things they can't do in either Arcata or Fortuna, although I have no idea what those things might be.
I know Fortuna has Eel River Disposal to dump trash at, but don't the Arcata garbage trucks dump their loads in Eureka? Hmmm... I wonder if some statistics are being manipulated here?
