Are dumps the same thing as ladfills?



  1. 0 Votes

    The days of casual ‘dumps’ — where townfolk can freely throw their rubbish without penalty — is in the past; the EPA is much more watchful of proper disposal of trash and specific regulations regarding waste. Anything called a dump nowadays is a landfill, operated by the local or national government.

    A landfill is, “lined with waterproof materials, such as clay and
    plastic, that prevent rainwater and other liquids that ooze out of waste
    from getting into the environment and contaminating the ground.” They also have control over what goes in them so they can be designed properly and are covered with dirt on a regular basis. Whereas, “Dumps, on the other hand, are just that – a big hole or a big pile of
    garbage and possibly other dangerous things.”
