A landfill is defined as a facility used for the disposal of solid waste. Landfills are designed to monitor and ensure compliance with all federal regulations. They are also designed to protect the environment from contaminants that may be present in the waste. Monitoring systems for landfills also check for any sign of groundwater contamination and landfill gas, and provides additional safeguards.

The different types of landfills include municipal solid waste landfills, industrial waste landfills, and hazardous waste landfills. Under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Laws and Regulations Subtitle D, state and local governments are in charge of planning, regulating, and implementing entities for the management of nonhazardous solid waste, such as household garbage and nonhazardous industrial solid waste. Subtitle C establishes a federal program to manage hazardous wastes from start to finish.
