Waste Management’s waste education resources

Waste services provider Waste Management‘s Think Green site is loaded with educational resources covering all kinds of garbage-related topics, from recycling basics to lesser-known protocols like mail-in recycling programs for batteries and light bulbs and proper disposal of e-waste.  The site also hosts a collection of short, informative PDF files that illuminate some of the processes involved in engineering closed landfill sites: the dynamics of a gas extraction well, anatomy of a landfill, and workings of a leachate collection system (though it should be noted that the Fresh Kills Landfill is managed and operated by the New York City Department of Sanitation, not Waste Management, and the precise infrastructure of each site is different).  The graphics and descriptive text presented here are simple and clear, and a useful resource for all ages to read up on landfill and waste management operations.
