Choose a High Income Country (HIC) you have studied. Explain how it disposes of different types of waste (6)

Chosen country: Germany

Germany disposes of its domestic waste by either sending it to one of 160 landfill sites, one of 68 incinerators, or by recycling it. Landfill is when waste is placed in holes in the ground, which is a popular option in Germany as there are already holes left from quarrying so it's a cheap option. Incineration is burning the waste. The heat can be used to heat homes,
