How do we keep landfills from damaging the environment?

    The fact that landfills exist damage the environment – but we try to prevent further harm in a few ways.  First, a very thin plastic tarp is laid down on the fill site to help prevent chemicals from seeping into the ground from the waste.  We also attempt to recycle so that reusable items don’t waste space.  We also have special facilities to recycle toxic waste and electronics so that the hazardous materials in them do not involve animals that get into the dump sites and so that they do not leech into the earth.
