**drwls**, Friday, January 28, 2011 at 2:05amDivide the available volume by the annual volume of compacted waste.

The annual volume of compacted waste is (1/2)*765*5*52 = 9.95*10^4 m^3

The 16.2 hectares piled 10 m deep is an available volume of 16.2*10^4*10 = 1.62*10^6 m^3

It will be full in 16.3 years
