A deal has been struck to limit the size of one of California's largest trash dumps.
The San Diego Union-Tribune reports Friday that landfill operators have agreed to curtail the height of the Sycamore Landfill's future expansion.
The amount of trash that could be dumped daily would also be reduced—a move that would decrease the amount of truck traffic in and out of the area.
The agreement between the cities of Santee and San Diego and landfill operators still needs to be finalized, but it effectively ends an eight-year fight over the facility's planned expansion.
