Abstract

What was once an easy and cheap method of disposing of waste now poses serious health and environmental concerns. Because of the many products we consume, today’s waste is filled with toxic chemicals that weren’t around 50 or 60 years ago. Once pollutants are in the air, there is no way to prevent them from depositing on crops and water sources. Clean air regulations continue to become more stringent because research has shown human health is impacted to a greater extent than previously thought.
