QuickThing9: just exactly where is “away”?

Smart guys at MIT decide to wade into the trash flows.

Looks like someone else’s away might be actually be your backyard.

Anyone familiar with system dynamics can imagine a whole new inflow to your garbage . . . stuff from across the country!  Each of those brightly colored lines stretching across the United States as the trash gets shipped out of Seattle is a flow and each end point is a stock.  Makes me wonder what the outflows of those stocks might be.
