The Southeastern Public Service Authority, a Virginia regional trash authority, faces a $4 million shortfall this year. This year SPSA has been sued by Chesapeake, and lost a $2 million contract with Bay Disposal. SPSA intends to sell "green energy" credits that it earns from converting trash to steam and electricity at a power plant in Portsmouth, and will impose a hiring freeze, stop out-of-state travel, take other cost-saving steps and accept more contaminated soils.
