China's mountainous tower of trash

China's economic growth in the last thirty years has been stunning, averaging just under 10 percent per year in the last 30 years, roughly three times the global average.

Interesting. There is a landfill about 30 miles from my house that is next to a main highway. Depending on the way the wind is blowing, you can smell it was you drive by. Unfortunately, it's near a residential zone and I always think of the fermenting smell from the pickle factory I used to pass each morning (when the air was still) when going to work.
Anyway, since this landfill is so huge, it's become a landmark for giving directions... we affectionately call it "Mount Trashmoore"

A community in the general city here, recently had a landfill closed, because of its proximity to a community the city does not give developmental respect, its an area left ignored since the 1960's... but the people fought and they closed it, now the company has to do something to put out the fire and deal with seepage.
