A sanitary landfill is different from a dump in the meaning that it goes above and beyond to assure that there is no environmental pollution. A sanitary landfill also reuses gases to generate electricity while eliminating the chance of liquids spillage onto fresh groundwater. The landfill is also covered, so the wind won’t fly away debris or any piece of garbage. A dump is just an open space to dump the garbage. No controlled activity, no monitoring, no expert supervision, and no environmental protection. The waste decomposes in the open air and pollutes the soil and groundwater water.
