    Two examples of landfills that are shutting down are in Cebu (a large region of the Philippines) and in Carmel, California. The Cebu City government just recently ruled to shut down the Inayawan landfill by October. In Carmel, in response to a number of environmental violations, the Putnam County legislature is making motions to shut down their dump, and hope to have all dumpings cease by May 2012. Landfills are responsible for major greenhouse emissions, pose public health risks, and are filled with materials that could be recycled.
