What is the biggest development on top of a landfill?

    The word “landfill” does not necessarily mean “garbage dump,” but rather refers to any area of land that has been reclaimed from some unusuable status, such as water. Nearly 1/5 of the country of the Netherlands, for example, is built upon formerly submerged lands which technically qualifies as “landfill.” In the specific context of wastelands and former garbage dumps that have been converted to usable developments, the city of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates was the site of the largest development of former waste disposal lands beginning in 2005. Sydney Olympic Park in Sydney, Australia, built for the 2000 summer Olympics, is another large-scale development on former waste disposal lands, having been built on the site of eight former garbage dumps as well as former industrial and military facilities that generated considerable environmental impacts.
