Caption: Landfill. A pile of domestic waste at a landfill site. This is a site where waste is disposed of by burial. Landfill contains a variety of waste, including plastics and organic materials. Rotting organic materials can cause considerable quantities of methane gas, which is tapped at some larger sites. Plastics in landfill can take decades to decompose. Some landfill sites are covered with soil when full then landscaped for recreational use. Efficient recycling of waste dramatically reduces the demand for landfill capacity, especially important in high population density countries such as the UK. Photographed outside Yekaterinberg, Russia.
