Reduce | Reuse | Recycle First” Activity – Can this be used again? Can this item be recycled? What is compostable? What could we use instead that will do less harm to our environment? This is further supported by a colorful Recycling activity allowing your audience to participate in determining what gets recycled and where certain trash should be placed.

How does a landfill function?
With the EnviroScape Waste Management model you can simulate rain on the landfill and follow its path through the solid waste.
Collect and recirculate leachate from the landfill back through the trash – or transport it from the landfill to a wastewater treatment plant.
Close the landfill with a “cap” and show how it is designed for the rain to flow off the impermeable cover or "cap" to stormwater retention areas.

Compare the modern landfill with a demonstration of an older style landfill “dump” of the past, monitoring the groundwater by near this landfill.

People depend on landfills for solid waste disposal and at the same time object to landfills in their backyard because of a fear factor. The EnviroScape Landfill model helps reduce the fear factor by demonstrating the basic concepts of modern landfills. This demonstration conveys scientific concepts and practices used for environmental protection and helps make environmental studies more interesting and exciting.
