A better way to keep gadgets out of the landfill is to try to repair them. Resist the urge to constantly upgrade. Reuse them instead.
Landfill

A landfill, also known as a dump or rubbish dump (and historically as a midden), is a site for the disposal of waste materials by burial and is the oldest form of waste treatment.

The Mountain View Regional Waste Management Commission has operated the Landfill site near Didsbury since November 2004. The Mountain View Regional Waste Landfill is located two kilometres northwest of the Town of Didsbury. The Commission operates the landfill under an approval from Alberta Environment. The approval authorizes the disposal of Class II and Class III waste in isolated cells.

This is the liner put down to stop all leaching. Shredded recycled tires replaces expensive gravel as part of the leachate collection pad.Site construction began in October 2004 with the installation of an engineered liner; a leachate collection system; surface drainage retention ponds, and monitoring wells. The landfill requires ongoing capital cell expansion to accommodate waste volumes.

All solid waste generated within the County is accepted at the landfill and all solid waste accepted at Commission Transfer Sites is hauled with Commission trucks to the landfill.

Solid waste is separated into two categories, Class II and Class III and placed in cells constructed specifically for that waste category. Landfill waste compaction and the application of daily cover is being done by the Commission.

The landfill provides a residential transfer area for safe residential waste disposal, a recycling centre and household hazardous waste disposal. Recycle areas are designated for large quantities of recycle materials such as strand wire, concrete and asphalt that are only accepted at the landfill.

The landfill is open to the public 8 hours per day Monday through Saturday. A waste drop area (transfer site) for residential disposal is provided for the public. Attendants are on duty, attending the scale operation and overseeing the dumping of the waste entering the site. Large commercial vehicles are allowed to tip waste at the cell face. A recycling depot is located at the transfer station and accepts all recycling materials and household hazardous waste from within the County boundary.

If Albertans diverted household food scraps from the landfill to composting, there would be a net CO2 emissions savings of 237,690 tonnes per year.
