  • High up on a hallowed hill in a garbage dump were the ashes of the men and women and children left behind when they shut down the massive sifting operation that ran around the clock seven days a week for nearly a year

  • Now they were all buried together in what has become the only cemetery in the world that is located in the middle of a garbage dump

  • The law stated that the ashen remains of those who died in the September 11 attacks be removed from Fresh Kills and 'integrated into a memorial at the World trade Center.'

  • Energy & Waste - Landfilling YESTERDAY AND TODAY For hundreds of years, people have used garbage dumps to get rid of their trash

  • Yesterday’s garbage dump was nothing more than a pit or field just outside of town where people left their garbage

  • People tossed all sorts of waste into these dumps

  • The dumps were breeding grounds for disease-carrying pests such as flies, mosquitoes, and rats

  • Rainwater flushed filthy, and sometimes poisonous, liquids from the dump into nearby streams and groundwater supplies that people used for drinking, bathing, and clothes washing

  • Later, some towns spread dirt to contain the dumped waste and to discourage vermin

  • This helped, but it was little more than a cover-up for unsanitary dumping

  • Today, we still bury our garbage, although not in the open dumps of yesterday

  • Now that open dumping is illegal, deciding where to put a landfill requires careful planning

  • A MODERN LANDFILL Today’s landfills are very different from the open dumps of the past
