Why is this a Problem for burying polymers in a landfill?

Polymers are often made from crude oil distillates that cannot be turned in to gasoline. We pay for crude oil, what sense does it make to put it back in the ground where it serves no useful purpose, and is so stable it will not become crude oil again? Additionally, some polymers leach compounds into the ground water, which can become a problem for future generations (some we cannot foresee, of course). The validity of the above answers are questionable but it is true that polymers are very stable. It is not known how long plastic will remain in a landfill so it will continue to accumulate. Some envision a world where there are large mountains of plastic trash. I hope that world never comes.
