The new and also most of the old landfills cause serious environmental problems, since, together with rainwater and landfill, toxic and nutrient materials enter both groundwater and nearby open water bodies, causing pollution and eutrophication of water bodies and land. Landfills also negatively affect the comfort of people who live nearby – odors, gases, pests, fires, pathogens, etc. – and also cause potential health risks.
