Are there laws on trash segregation here in the US?

    Yes. Unsafe materials and hazardous chemicals are not thrown away in normal landfills. I recently had to throw away a refridgerator that no longer worked and a few older, cathode ray tube tevelvision sets, and they made me take each of these to a different section of the dump so they could remove the harmful chemicals before discarding or recycling the remaining garbage. The idea is to make sure these chemicals do not leak their way through the ground and get into the water supply. That’s why you’re not supposed to throw batteries away in the regular trash because the battery acid can potentially harm people later.
