How much trash is currently in landfills in the United States?

    There are 560,000 acres of landfill in the country, I am not sure how much trash fits into an acre…but it is a lot! This is 0.02% of our total land in the country. This is just active landfills, after about fifty years they are full, covered with grass, and said to be ‘reclaimed by nature’ (what about all the stuff under the grass??).
