Landfills are sites designated for the disposal of waste material by burial. Waste material is trucked in, dumped, spread around, and covered with soil. The waste is continuously compacted to create space to accommodate more waste. They’ve been a cost-efficient way for industry to dispose of waste, while causing a number of issues for the surrounding community. According the NC Department of Environmental Quality, there are over 1,000 landfills (active and closed) across the state of NC.
