The Situation of US landfills
The United States is the largest economy, and this is in no small part due to national consumption.
Americans are known to be big spenders in a society dominated by instant gratification and hyper-consumerism. As such we can expect a huge quantity of garbage created daily from such behavior.
Waste management and how to deal with with the problem of containing pollution is one of the nightmares facing local and state oficials.
