    The cost to maintain landfills depend on the size and usage of the respective location.  Municipal solid waste landfills owners are required by the Environmental Protection Agency to be able to pay for cleaning up contaminates that might seep out into the surrounding areas.  As for costs, San Jose is known to be one of the highest landfill tax regions in California and “In 1995, San Jose, California reported that it cost them $28 per ton to place waste into a landfill and $147 per ton to recycle.”
