your post shows it went to somewhere called Freshkills Landfill site for processing, they might have renamed the site or used somewhere else, thats pretty sick if you ask me. Good post all the same, thanks.
Fresh Kills Landfill is located on the western shore of Staten Island. Approximately half the 2,200-acre landfill is composed of four mounds, or sections, identified as 1/9, 2/8, 3/4 and 6/7 which range in height from 90 feet to approximately 225 feet. These mounds are the result of more than 50 years of landfilling, primarily household waste.

Kills is the Dutch word for stream or small creek.

[Dutch kil, from Middle Dutch kille.]
As a body of water, a kill is a creek. The word comes from the Middle Dutch kille, meaning "riverbed" or "water channel." The modern Dutch term is kil.
The term is used in areas of Dutch influence in New York State and other areas of the former New Netherland colony of Dutch America to describe a strait, river or arm of the sea. Examples are Kill Van Kull and Arthur Kill, both separating Staten Island, New York from New Jersey, and used as a composite name, Wallkill River in Orange County, New York and the Schuylkill River in Pennsylvania. In Delaware, there ironically exists "Murderkill."
A reference to 'kil' can be found in Dutch geographical names, e.g. Dordtsche Kil and Sluiskil (in the Terneuzen municipality).
