You KNOW that, do you? Just how do you know that? Seems to me that landfills and incinerators HELP the environment. If it weren't for landfills and incinerators, where would we put all our trash? Just pile it up in the back yard? Dump it in the forest? Dump it in the ocean? Aren't we, in fact, REMOVING trash from the "environment" by putting it in landfills or burning it?
