Madison Heights, Mich., and municipal corporation SOCRRA have been feuding for decades. Recently, the duo debated over using an old incinerator site on John R in Madison Heights as a waste transfer station. And after a six-hour meeting, SOCRRA agreed to clean up its transfer station in the city, and Madison Heights agreed to let SOCRRA bring limited amounts of waste to the transfer station until December 31, 2017, when its new multimillion-dollar, single stream recycling plant in Troy is expected to be complete.

The trash-talkin’ little guy — that’s the City of Madison Heights; population 30,000 — has cut a deal with the giant, impersonal foe called SOCRRA, a waste authority 25 times bigger, covering 750,000 residents in Oakland County.
