THERE were no tears shed in Sun Valley on Saturday when Bradley Landfill accepted its last shipments of trash. The closure of the half-century-old dump marked the beginning of a welcome development in Los Angeles – the end of putting landfills in densely populated areas. The question now turns to what happens next. Waste Management, which operated Bradley, wants to build a trash-hauling and recycling center on the site. Neighbors are understandably uncomfortable with the idea, but clearly it’s an improvement over a dump. And done properly, it could provide the elusive answer for how to deal with the city’s trash in a clean, modern, environmentally appropriate way. So good riddance to Bradley’s bad trash. We look forward to a valuable discussion about Sun Valley’s future.
