Do dumpsters release methane into the atmosphere?

    Yes. When organic materials decompose they release methane, therefore there must be methane being released from dumpsters. However, trash normally doesn’t stay in dumpsters for an extended period of time. It is usually transferred to landfills. There are actually ways to collect methane from landfills and use it as an alternative energy source (see article below).
