WASTE/LANDFILL

WASTE/LANDFILL
Grand Challenge

Waste is a huge global problem. In 2012 alone, Americans generated about 251 million tons of trash. Current methods of disposal are not sustainable. One current method for getting rid of waste is a landfill. Landfills however take up large spaces and sometimes leak and can lead to contaminated water and soil. Today, only through better recycling and composting methods can the world expect to see improvement.
