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 are molded from millions of tons of trash (reference). Images sourced from Google Maps in April and July, 2018, and depict sites with the largest amounts of waste in place I've found thus far using an EPA dataset from February, 2018. Location, tons, and other details provided upon image selection for non-mobile devices only. (2018 - Ongoing)
