Sanitary landfill
Explanation:
En Chile también se usa el término.
Según la definición de US-EPA (Agencia de Protección Ambiental de Estados Unidos), puedes decir simplemente LANDFILL: "disposal sites for non-hazardous solid wastes spread in layers, compacted to the smallest practical volume, and covered by material applied at the end of each operating day. 2. Secure chemical landfills are disposal sites for hazardous waste, selected and designed to minimize the chance of release of hazardous substances into the environment"
Con esto haces la diferencia respecto de un botadero sin condiciones de seguridad y/o protección que es DUMP : "A site used to dispose of solid waste without environmental controls. "


Suerte y saludos, María Alejandra
