Caption: Waste landfill site. A waste truck dumps refuse at a landfill site. Domestic waste is being disposed of here. Landfill sites are used to dispose of about 90% of the world's domestic waste. The type of material dumped must be controlled to prevent chemical toxins leaching into local groundwater. Leaching may also be prevented by lining the site with synthetic materials or impermeable clay. In time the dump may be covered with soil, landscaped, and the land sold to developers. Photographed in England.
