Although conservation, reuse, recycling, and composting have reduced municipal waste, most of the waste society generates still ends up in landfills. At present, there are more than five thousand landfills in the United States.
Public concern over the environment as well as the consequences associated with past construction methods makes the development, maintenance, expansion and closure of a landfill very complex.
