Municipal Wastes

Landfill means waste disposal on land. The practice has had various titles over the years: tips (UK); sanitary landfill (USA); coups (Scotland); dumps (Worldwide). Its opponents have given it less attractive names.

Traditionally, waste meterials have been deposited in voids or on adjacent land of little or no commercial or agriceltural value. Lack of finance and expertise had led to considerable environmental problems; water pollution, air pollution and vermin.
