From HAZCO's FAQ web page (quoted verbatim):
FAQ #8. Why is this a good area to build your facility? What makes this better than somewhere more remote?
The area is an ideal choice for the facility due to access to rail, road and infrastructure as well as availability of a skilled labour pool. Placing the facility in a remote area would negate these benefits and significantly increase the capital cost while reducing the usefulness of the facility.
Right. It is a choice location for prime industrial development. Let's not waste it on an industrial waste management facility that adds only minimally to our tax revenue, while the tax revenue it would provide would in all likelihood be insufficient to compensate for the damages the traffic to the facility would cause to our road network.
