Miramar Landfill

According to https://www.sandiego.gov/environmental-services/miramar, "almost 910,000 tons of trash is disposed of yearly at the Miramar Landfill. The landfill spans over 1,500 acres and is the City of San Diego's only active landfill. San Diegans throw away enough recyclables to energize over 181,000 households for a year, conserve 3,355,937 barrels of oil, and fuel over 400 cars for a year (156,610,400 gallons/25 miles per gallon/15,000 miles/year)."
