What is the Environmental impact of Landfills?

A Picture of Junk Removal Plainfield

The world has been expanding rapidly over the past several decades. Even within a global pandemic many individuals are taking charge. From building businesses, exploring new hobbies together, and the world is more connected as ever. However, the impact of human trash and waste has grown exponentially with the growth of countries around the world. But what are some of the environmental impact of landfills?

Landfills and dumpsites often pack trash under the ground to help with decomposition. However, as organic matter and other trash decomposes, it creates Methane. This gas is much much more potent than carbon dioxide (up to 28 times more) and is a leading cause for environmental impact. With a global estimate of 2 billion tons of trash per year, landfills are overflowing with trash and other items that could easily be recycled (Find out more here!)

There is hope however! By recycling your items, our landfills can be less impactful on the environment. Recycling reduces landfill waste by roughly 32% per year (Click here). By helping our local communities to recycle more, Fire Dawgs helps to do our part by reducing the environmental impact of landfills. We take the time to ensure that recyclables are separated from the trash we haul away so you can feel good about getting rid of your old items!
