IOWA has used landfills for many years and until recent requirements, they are unlined polluting our beautiful land’s air and water. New landfills must have a liner however the hazard of the waste that is buried there does not go away. If new landfills are needed, they are very difficult to site requiring years of negotiations, much land area at high cost, not to mention dissention in the community. Other waste is shipped out of state requiring fuel to get it there. Recycling only answers part of the problem.
