child, wondering where trash goes: well someone must have thought of a good solution for all this
adults: we put it into very large holes and then put dirt on top
child: even the plastic?
adults: especially the plastic
child: oh my god
Child: what if you run out of room?
Adults: Burn it.
Child: Even the plastic?
Adults: Especially the plastics.
@thor Worth mentioning also that plastic recycling is pretty much make-believe (few cycles and many common types can't be recycled even once or few places actually accept them). Maybe it gets turned into a lawn chair on the way to the landfill though...yay...
Just making the stuff in the first place is harmful too.
@thetrakynia yeah, i've heard about the problem. a lot of the stuff we wrap in plastic could be sealed in glass containers with a lid instead. or metal cans, if they can remelt those.
@thetrakynia to be fair there's effectively unlimited places for us to put garbage. There's a *lot* of land without a water table worth worrying about.
