Rob Beavan asked the Naked Scientists:
Hey guys. Great show. Helps with my daily commute.

My question is this : have any studies been carried out in regards to the effect of reducing the amount of items going to landfill that now get composted or otherwise disposed of ? Surely there will be a knock-on effect?


What do you think?

Presumably they both give rise to large amounts of CO2 and methane?

Although isn't composting a rather good way of recycling your food
and other rubbish??
