As you’ve already may know, most garbage goes into landfills, which is the modern version of a garbage dump. However, the world is running out of landfill space quickly. Also, the space that is used for landfills could be used for other purposes such as homes, farms, parks, businesses, schools, etc. This space could also be kept as wilderness for the pleasure of both people and animals. The answer is simple: if we recycle, we will cut down on the space needed for landfills.
By the way, landfills also cause another problem. Landfills are very unhealthy places. When rain or snow falls on the landfills and then seeps into the garbage, they turn into a poisonous, soupy liquid called leachate. This leachate sinks into the ground and pollutes the groundwater under the landfill. It also can leak into streams, lakes and natural wells. Then we need to make sure that this poisonous liquid does not get into our drinking water! If it does, it is very expensive and difficult to purify the water to get rid of this contaminated substance.
