A dump is a large hole in the ground where waste is buried. The hole is not regulated and offers no environmental protection.
A landfill consists of several complex cells where the waste is properly buried each day. Each cell has an advanced linear system, which prevents waste from leaving the cell. The linear system has both a clay and plastic lining underneath the waste, which prevents contaminated water from coming into contact with the groundwater. Each day, the waste in the cell is covered with heavy equipment or at least six inches of soil. Landfills do not break down the waste, but rather store it.
