What is landfill?
Landfills, also known as dumps or tips, are a waste disposal system that involves taking waste and dumping it into large holes in the ground. The rubbish then breaks down over millions of years until it becomes part of the earth. It is the longest standing method of waste disposal, having been used by various cultures as a primary method of disposing of unwanted waste products throughout history. The idea behind a landfill is to compact all the rubbish into the smallest amount of space possible for the sake of efficiency, and then to essentially forget about it. It is the most cost-efficient type of waste disposal, but is harmful for the environment and dramatically reduces the stability of the soil.
