  2. Probably would have been a good idea to highlight this before Dennis came by

  3. Who could have predicted that burying rubbish might have consequences further down the line.

  4. Is there a reason to put landfills on the coast? My city landfill is right on the coast and would be prime waterfront property. Every time I go there it boggles my mind that the city took such a beautiful plot and put a dump there.
