  • 1.
    • This is a
    • powerpoint about rubbish.
  • 2.
    • Rubbish is everything we throw away. Everything we put in the bin goes to a rubbish dump.
  • 3.
    • About 80% of all rubbish ends up in landfill sites.
  • 4.
    • These are large pits filled with rubbish and covered up with soil. Most of these are already full up.
  • 5.
    • Some waste like paint and cleaning products have chemicals in them which can leak into the soil and get into the water supply.
  • 6.
    • Landfill sites also pollute the air with methane. Methane is a gas that is produced as the rubbish rots underground. Pipes inserted into the ground let the gas out so that there are no explosions underground.

    • Also, if you burn rubbish, smoke pollutes the air.
