    Default cinturon ecologico

    Hola Amigos

    ┐Alguien sabe como llama en E.Unidos, o Inglaterra lo que nosotros llamamos cinturon ecol˛gico? Es donde la basura se arroja.
    Muchas gracias,
    Diego

    Hola Diego!

    In the U.S.:

    Dump; Garbage dump, Trash dump; Waste dump; Landfill; Waste Disposal Site

    We use the verb "to dump" to say throw out or dispose of trash/garbage.

    The most common usage is "garbage dump"; the most formal is "waste disposal site".

    Hi Vicente, thank you for your help. GARBAGE DUMP IS THE CONTAINER. THE PLACE WHERE THE GARBAGE IS DISPOSED OF IS "THE WASTE DISPOSAL SITE" AM I OK?

    Garbage CAN is the container. Garbage dump is the place where it is dumped. You probably should use WASTE DISPOSAL SITE (a more modern environmental term).

    Around my area they take garbage to a "landfill" where it is eventually covered with dirt and becomes usable land, but that is also a WASTE DISPOSAL SITE.
