Where does garbage go?

Action for a cleaner tomorrow: A South Carolina Environmental Curriculum Supplement is an activity-based interdisciplinary curriculum supplement that can serve as a starting place for introducing basic environmental education in the classroom. In this lesson, students will: learn how much solid waste we generate each day; learn how solid waste is managed; learn that most of the solid waste we generate goes to a landfill; and  learn that a landfill is a specially designed space to hold solid waste.
