facility is secured and monitored by electronic surveillance. This facility is back by site designs and management systems that minimize risks and liabilities. Conclusion I have learned quite a bit from this assignment. Open dumps are the past time of waste management, although, they did not seem to contain the garbage that was created all that well. Early landfills were a step up from open dumps as they helped to somewhat contain the garbage we produced. Modern landfills have been a huge step up from open dumps and early landfills. Modern landfills are used to contain trash help reduce the risk of water contamination and methane gas. The Altamont Landfill in California is one of the most precise and up to par
landfills of our time. They used leachate contaminated water and soils to keep down dust and pollution at their facility as well as collecting the methane gasses and using them in vehicles and to produce electricity to the nearby community.
