Landfill sites are sites where waste is disposed of by burying it in the ground. Literally ‘filling up the land’.  Often disused quarries, landfills have traditionally been the most popular means of waste disposal.  The least available figures state that more than 23% of all the UK’s waste goes to landfill (Source: Defra).

In the UK, there are over 500 landfill sites – but most of us have no idea where they are located.  So, we thought it was high time for the world to know!

Please use our interactive UK landfill site map below to find out where your nearest landfill sites are and feel free to share it with your friends.  No doubt they’re all desperate to know too 🙂
