Landfill = RESOURCE!

Am I the only one that views landfills as the future's mines? Can't you just see it? Let's say that aluminum or iron ore becomes scarce in the natural deposits around 2500 a.d. Wouldn't you think you think that at some point they'd turn to old capped landfills to retrieve valuable resources? Most definitely they will. I completely believe that individuals should recycle what they can, but on the other hand, don't beat yourself up if you throw away a Coke can from time to time. It will have its day in the sun again!
