Closing Incinerator = More Jobs?

According to this article, the Detroit City Council Environmental and Recycling Task Force approved a plan which calls for closing Detroit’s trash incinerator in 2009. The creation of 1,000 new jobs is estimated if a 50% recycling rate is reached in Detroit. I wonder at how many jobs will be lost when the incinerator closes, where the trash will be dumped, and what happens when a 50% rate is not reached.
