Landfill is the oldest and the most widely practised method of disposing of solid waste.
Properly constructed and operated landfill sites offer a completely safe disposal route for municipal solid wastes, typically at the lowest cost compared to other disposal options.
Most alternative waste treatment and disposal options, such as recycling or incineration, rely on landfill for disposal of wastes which are unsuited to the process as well as for the process residues.
Therefore some landfill capacity is indispensible for every region, and will continue to be necessary in the forseeable future despite any technological advances which may be made.
