Landfills, Composting, and Recycling

In today’s municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills, waste is not actually meant to break down (biodegrade). Landfills do not function like compost piles. Biodegradation in a landfill can lead to the release of methane gas or leachate, which can be harmful to the environment and landfill operations. In fact, landfills separate waste from oxygen, sunlight, and water to halt biodegradation.

 

Sending waste to landfills is a safe and efficient option for most communities. Different options - like recycling, energy recovery, and composting - have also been developed for used food and beverage packaging.
