How much of the trash breaks down in landfills?

    Unfortunately, studies have shown that very little of the trash we place in landfills breaks down, even food scraps that we think of as easily biodegradable. This is because landfills are sealed in plastic liners that allow very little access to oxygen, water, and light- all necessary in the support of the microorganisms responsible for the process of decomposition. For this reason, we need to divert as much from landfills as possible and rethink the notion of waste.
