From the Forums: Is Littering Good To Get Rid of Trash?

This is just a thought, with the thought that trash going to the landfill taking longer to decompose because of poor access to oxygen, does that mean the litter that sits out in streets and elsewhere degrades more quickly? I know there are issues of this flying off towards sewage drains, and into oceans etc, but is this something worth somehow taking advantage of?

Another thought, I would imagine heat also can help decompose the trash more quickly... Is it worth having a designated area of a desert to let trash decompose? I know again there will be issues of what this trash will do to the local ecosystem, but given there's no "good' place to put trash, is this a worthwhile thought?
