How much ground will a piece of trash damage??

    It depends on what the piece of trash is and what happens to it.  For example let’s say the piece of trash is paper; it might blow away or hopefully eventually breakdown.  Let’s say that piece of trash is some kind of medical waste contaminated with pathogens that wasn’t properly disposed of.  Maybe rain comes, dilutes the contamination, and carries pathogens from the trash over a larger part of ground.  Another possibility is that the diluted liquid of the trash makes its way into ground water, in which case it spreads even farther.  In this way then, the trash has damaged much more ground than the space it was taking up.
