When did we start capping landfills and building over them?

    Landfills themselves are pretty ancient concepts and as you may have noticed that archeological digs often focus on “garbage heaps.” The modern landfill is first seen in 1904 in the United States and in the 1920s in Great Britian. Capping is most likely a result of EPA regulation and safety, so that practice probably began more recently, like in the 1970s.
