    It is very difficult to know how much trash is in our landfills in America, but here are some statistics to give you an idea.  As of 2005, 246 million tons of trash was created in the United States per year. 

    There are 3,091 landfills being actively used in the US right now and over 10,000 old landfills.  Also, 50-some years ago, almost every town had its own dump site.  Let’s just say, there is a lot of trash in America.
