Is only six inches a problem?
BBC NEWS | UK | Britain now 'dustbin of Europe'
Households sent more than 22.6 million tonnes of rubbish to landfill in the most recent year in which comparable figures were available across the EU.
Council leaders warn that an area the size of Warwick - 109 square miles - is already used as landfill.
109 square miles = 282 308 704 m2.
Density of rubbish - 481 kg/cu.m
22.6 million tonnes = 46 985 447 cu.m
46 985 447 / 282 308 704 = 0.166432867
Look guys I think the problem might be that you are only filling the landfills to 16 cm depth, that is six inches in real money, no wonder it is spread out all over Warwick. It is either that or the alarmist report is rubbish
