New York/New Jersey Trash Fight

Kerry Donahue from member station WBGO in Newark, New Jersey reports on the latest garbage skirmish between New York and New Jersey. On Staten Island, the Fresh Kills landfill will be closed by the end of next year and is the world's largest dump. After the Fresh Kills closure, 13-thousand tons of New York City garbage will pass through New Jersey every day by rail. And some New Jersey residents aren't happy about it.
