Arizona garbage goes to meteor crater.

Meteor, AZ. Tragically the residents of Arizona are running out of room for garbage disposal. Their preference is to send garbage overflows to Texas, a deserving state, but the existing environmental regulations prohibit the transportation of garbage over New Mexico.

Faced with few choices, and ruling out the Grand Canyon, the state regulators have chosen the meteorite hole that will hold six months supply of garbage while lawyers formulate a work around to the New Mexico over the road rule.

The Meteor Crater, formerly known as Canyon Diablo Crater, is out in the boonies from Flagstaff and easily reachable via a well maintained highway system.

Historically, Arizona has been a model garbage citizen that has been able to utilize dumpsites, far from Phoenix, that were inconspicuously positioned amongst the saguaro cacti.

California, not impeded by transportation regulations, has been able to offload discarded movie sets that have added to the Arizona Garbage Dilemma.

The Meteor Crater represents a last resort effort by Arizona to consume garbage that has grown substantially as the populations of Phoenix and Tucson have sky rocketed. The current recession has added to the problem as foreclosures have created new garbage.

The state plans a clean out using federal Super Fund Cleanup monies based on the legal argument that garbage is toxic to the crater site seeing.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
