    Every year we fill enough garbage trucks to form a line that would stretch from the earth, halfway to the moon.

    The information on exactly the amount of trash that goes to various landfills was difficult to find.

    This article, written in 2006, had the only landfill-based statistic that I could find that was less than ten years old. This article cites that 64.1% of municipal solid waste (or MSW) is brought to a landfill.
