Why is there not much research on making products from the garbage that is sent to the landfill ?

The countries send millions of tons of garbage to the landfill. This represents already mined metals, glass, and minerals. There are plastic, oil and Petroleum products that could be used to produce other products. Where is the new technology that can be used to produce useful products from all the garbage? Where are the new jobs to process the waste into useful products?

    grumpiornot, I am from South Carolina in USA and I am disheartened at the amount of garbage that goes to the landfill. This area does not seem to be concerned about recycling or harvesting ready-made resources of garbage. There, you have; fantastic!
