(d) Abandoned quarries, gravel pits, gullies, or similar areas can be used
as sanitary fills, thus achieving an effective use of space. (Care must be taken to avoid
permeable soils that will allow relatively easy movement of leachate from the landfill.)
(e) After the landfill has been filled with solid waste and it can no longer
be used, the land can be reclaimed and used for various purposes such as a
recreational area or parking lot.
