American Landscapes

A study of American landfills and their neighboring metropolitan communities. Modern sanitary landfills entomb solid waste within layers of plastic, soil, and clay to protect public and environmental health and to reduce odor. In the process, methane-expelling mountains rise from millions of tons of trash. Images sourced from Google Maps in April 2018, and depict some of the largest sites from a February 2018 EPA dataset. Non-mobile devices only: click images for location, tons, and other details. (2018)
