Broward County, Florida will receive $280,000 and an upgrade to its recycling center as a result of a settlement with Browning-Ferris Industries over the disposal of area waste. BFI is turning over its hauling contracts in unincorporated areas of the county to Waste Management, which will provide the upgrades to the recycling center, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. In June, Broward County won a federal court victory requiring waste to be disposed of at its two incinerators. A judge found that the county did not violate the commerce clause when requiring the waste from unincorporated areas to go to the incinerators as part of a hauling contract.
