Wyoming's Wind Turbine Graveyard

CASPER, WYOMING, USA - January 9, 2020: Pieces of wind turbine blades are buried in the Casper Regional Landfill in Casper, Wyoming. Around 8,000 wind turbine blades will need to be removed and disposed of a year in the United States alone. Because of the conditions they are built to withstand, the blades cannot be easily recycled. This leads many of them to be buried in landfills like Casper's, where 870 blades stacked into holes 30 feet deep. (Photo by Benjamin Rasmussen/Getty Images)
