ABSTRACT
The article presents information on several important events related to environmental protection that took place in the U.S. as of 2006. In 1987 the Garbage Project at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona began excavating modern landfills as if they were ancient archaeological sites. In 2001 the Los Angeles International Airport began a six-month pilot project to recycle kitchen scraps and uneaten leftovers from people's plates. Airport officials say the project will divert 7,800 tons of food waste from landfills annually.
