How many years does landfill trash retain its original weight, volume and form?

Answer

The trash that is placed in a landfill begins to break down immediately. The breaking down process takes a very long time to complete so the original weight, volume, and form would change the moment it is entered into the landfill and crushed along with the other garbage.
