How long does it take plastic to decompose in a landfill site?
Plastic doesn't decompose, unless it's made of vegetable oil.Normal plastic breaks down eventually into tiny pieces, but they'restill tiny pieces of plastic, which kill birds …and animals that eatthem accidentally.
Glass never decomposes. It is made from molten sand.

It takes 70-450 years to decompose. And if you buy biodegradable platic it only takes 75-180 days. Wow, that is a BIG difference and that is fantastic that people actually l…ook at this and they think about it and then they say "Save The Ozone Layer!" I bet that everyone that reads this will take the step to buy everything that is biodegradable! Thank you soooooo much for reading this an taking time out of your life!
A plastic bottle takes 450 years to decompose.
depends on what it is try being more specific! this is want i know off the top of my head: plastic bottles: 70-450 years piece of paper: 2-5 months plastic bag: 500-…1000 years tin can: around 50 years leather shoes: 25-40 years banana peel: 2-10 days sugarcane: 30-60 days thread: 3-4 months cotton: 1-5 months paper bags: 2-5 months rope: 3-14 months orange peel: within 6 months cigarette: 1-12 years milk packet (tetra) covers and drink packets: 5 years nylon clothes: 30-40 years sanitary napkins & children diapers: 500-800 years glass bottles: 1,000,000 years I will add more as i go along! hairspray bottle:200-500 years fishing line:600 years. glass bottle;1-2 million years aluminum can:200 years apple core:2 months polystyrene:500 years
it depend on the place,worms,weather and quantity so it is not fixed it may take months or years
couple weeks to decompose.
It takes a very long time....hundreds of years.
Cars are seldom put into landfills; they contain enough easily recoverable metal to make recycling them a paying proposition.
About 400 years. Long time, huh?
An aluminum soda can will last hundreds or even thousands of years unless exposed to acidic soil or water. You can find remnants of soda cans that have been eaten away by acid… from rainfall. Aluminum soda cans will also slowly combust in the right conditions.
It depends on the mass of the cardboard I did an experiment and found out that in 2 weeks cardboard's mass decreased 0.04g so if a piece of cardboard has the mass of 0.40g …it'll take 20 weeks. I put that piece of cardboard in a landfill and put water in it 1 time It depends on the conditions. It Takes About 2-3 months depending on the environment. It takes 4 wks for a cardboard box to biodegrade!
this is a bit obvious init!! it takes around 10 years so that's about how long my ruler is
