It's interesting to think about what happens to our rubbish in the west. Much of our landfill is exported, where it is then trawled and recycled. I wonder how long it will be before our full landfill sites cease being 'contaminated land' and start to become 'mineral deposits'?

This is a trend that we covered in a previous post (see post).
