Tel Aviv's trash is being turned into fuel

Tel Aviv's trash is being turned into fuelResidents of Tel Aviv can start feeling a little less guilty about the amount of garbage they throw away. Just a short drive from the city, a new waste collection plant has begun processing the trash from an endless stream of garbage trucks, turning much of it into fuel for a nearby factory. The terminal creates what is known as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), handling about 1,500 tonnes of trash a day, or about half the trash produced by 1.5 million residents of Tel Aviv and its suburbs.
