Scoping an engineering project

The city of airdrie, alberta is a small city with just under 70,000 people. Up until recently, it shipped its wastes and collected recyclabes to the city of calgary, located about 40kms or 30 minutes away to the south. Calgary is a much larger city with the population of 1.4 million airdries garbage would be disposed of in calgarys landfill, and its recyclables would be included into calgarys much larger recyling program. however, with the recent changes in the world recycling market, calgary is questioning how many recycables it can accept from airdrie and other smaller municipalities.
