Here is some math based on the assumption that WM and BFI will not use the TS here. I know this is true of WM.

Rick had posted elsewhere the tonnage of trash from last year:

Houle - 3300 tons

Pinard - 1250 tons

Buckey - 975 tons

Atlantic - 455 tons

Less Mess - 410 tons

McGuinness - 290 tons

Total - 6680 tons

In another post I read that the self-haul tonnage was 4500.

The total tonnage to be hauled at an extra expense is 11180.

The fee per ton according to Jeannine is $52 so the total dumping cost is $581,360. The total revenue of 6680 at $110/ton is 734,000 giving us revenue of $153,440.

This $153,440 has to pay for the expenses that Norman outlined in a previous post.
