Did a behind-the-scenes political maneuver intended to thwart creation of a Gypsum Canyon jail and landfill spark the unusual garbage crisis of the past week? Around the county's Hall of Administration, in the offices of local waste haulers and at several city halls, observers are convinced that it did.

Under intense pressure from Orange County officials, an Anaheim trash hauler agreed Thursday to bring its business back to a county-run landfill by Sept. 1, ending a threat of increased garbage fees. The hauler, Anaheim Disposal, had stunned county officials by pulling out of the Olinda landfill near Brea and beginning to ship most of its 2,500 tons of daily garbage to a private West Covina landfill.

Garbage pickups came to a virtual halt in four Orange County cities and parts of five others Thursday as 220 workers from two Anaheim-based disposal companies quit work in what officials called a wildcat strike. The cause of the walkout was not clear, nor was its duration. The affected areas include Anaheim, Garden Grove, Brea and Placentia, some unincorporated areas and parts of Costa Mesa, Westminster, Stanton, Santa Ana and Orange.

Orange County officials may soon begin inviting a limited number of Los Angeles haulers to dump about 2,500 tons of garbage each day in county landfills. If adopted, the proposal would end a decades-old ban on outside trash in local landfills. The idea, outlined in a memo by the head of the finance committee of Orange County's Integrated Waste Management Commission, comes in response to the potential annual loss of $12 million in dumping fees at the Olinda landfill near Brea.

A trash-hauling firm in Anaheim that triggered a garbage crisis for Orange County last year when it took its business out of the county's landfills is threatening to pull out once again. The development came in a letter received Monday by Board of Supervisors Chairman Roger R. Stanton from Vincent Taormina, the chief executive officer of Anaheim Disposal Inc. And the news did not sit well with some officials.
