Are there other countries that have the same standards for landfills that we do?

    England has banned much of the same materials that the United States has, focusing mostly on hazardous materials such as corrosives and flammable waste.  They are also very prudent about not contaminating ground water, just as we are in the states. Unlike the United States, England has set out to reduce their negative environmental impact by sorting waste before dumping it into a landfill.  They plan to recover recyclable materials that would have otherwise spent hundreds of years sitting in a landfill before beginning to break down.
