Where Does My Trash Go?

Where Does My Trash Go?

On my tour, I learned that nothing gets sorted at the dump. If I put something recyclable in the trash can, it will end up in the landfill. There are no employees who sort anything in the trash, so it is imperative to be responsible for our own trash. Once the trash does end up at the dump, it just sits there and breaks down extremely slowly over time. Every piece of trash deposits chemicals and minerals into the dirt below. If someone throws away batteries or nail polish into their trash rather than depositing it at the hazardous materials site, all those chemicals seep into groundwater below. All that nastiness inevitably ends up in our drinking water or in our produce. The amounts are small, but those amounts have been rising over the years, and we need to do everything we can to make sure they stop rising.
