FC: Landfill Issues
1: A secure landfill is a carefully engineered depression in the ground or on top of the ground in which waste is disposed. a landfill is like a big bath tub in the ground.
3: We have landfills to hold waste and trash so it doesn't pile up all over the place.
5: Landfills Affect the air we breathe, the water we drink,and the land we walk on. It can be harmful but useful to us also.
6: Landfills also affect the environment because soon we will run out of land to build waste filled landfills, though it will take hundreds of yrs, it is very likely to occur.
9: landfills have there negative and positive effects on our environment but they are also helpful in keeping our garbage and waste.
11: a positive way landfills are helpful to the environment is that it keeps trash and waste in a retained area.
13: A negative way landfill effects the environment is the amount of decaying waste that leaks from the bottom and the top of the landfill site.
14: Respiratory,(your upper body including lungs and nasal cavity(nose),illness can be caused by the poor air quality and contaminated ground water that can be caused by the gases released by the landfill after the process of decaying begins to occur.
15: Landfills release hazardous gases that can cause life threating diseases and cancer that is harmful to the human body.
16: Landfill causes Geochemical changes in the ground water.Geochemical is the natural chemical balance in the earth surface and atmosphere.
17: Landfills are caused after other landfills are filled and there is extra garbage.
19: A solution to landfill pollution would be instead of throwing trash away recycle your trash, by taking to a factory.
