A landfill is a place to dispose of garbage and other waste material. This photograph shows a dump truck depositing trash in a landfill. The trash is then buried by covering it with soil. We need to be responsible citizens by reducing what we throw away in the garbage.

Source-Dependent Questions

  • When you compare the photos of the compost pile to the landfill, which shows evidence of responsibility?
  • How can we be responsible citizens when we need to get rid of things?
  • How can we make responsible decisions, so we do not throw so much away?
