depende...


Explanation:
Además de relleno sanitario, depende del contexto....
si se trata de una construcción vial por ejemplo, simplemente es relleno del terreno. Se debe rellenar el terreno para nivelarlo y después construir una carretera o calle.

Hope this helps! :)

vertedero


Explanation:
I think that since we don't know exactly waht kind of landfill we are talking about is pretty save to use plain "vertedero".

Give us the sentence where the word is used. It would help a lot more.
