Land pollution is one of the most criticalpollutants that need to be addressed. Land can become polluted byhousehold garbage and by industrial waste. In 2014, Americans producedabout 258 million tons of solid waste,according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. A little overhalf of the waste — 136 million tons— was gathered in landfills. Onlyabout 34% was recycled or composted. https://www.livescience.com/22728-pollution-facts….
