Landfills are designed to isolate trash from the environment.

It helps trash to decompose. It breaks up the trash so that the garbage does not pollute our air. Landfills have a line of soil underneath them so they do not pollute the ground and contaminate it.

I didn't know that we were supposed to recycle our garbage till now in fourth grade.If you recycle your garbage we can have more recycled things like glass,paper,plastic,cans.
