Unsettling

The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation estimates that there is enough space left at the Central Landfill in Johnston, RI for another 21 years of trash. But wait, there's good news – the landfill settles 1 foot per year. In approximately 220 years, then, we'll be able to start piling more trash on the same site. What we'll do in the intervening 199 years is anybody's guess.
