In a country which has been known for excessive air pollution caused through industry and burning off, Spain is also prone to sights such as in this stock photo, where household garbage has been dumped on the open land along both main and back roads.

The Province of Jaen is known for its many olive groves - row upon row of gnarly olive trees bear their tiny but valuable fruit. It is unfortunate then to see land pollution to this degree amongst or very close to the groves of olive trees in the otherwise beautiful scenery.

This scene is more than an eye sore, this kind of pollution also harms the land by allowing chemicals to run off the garbage into the soil below - soil which may some day be used to grow produce in the province of Jaen. Solid materials such as plastics do not breakdown but remain as they are for decades whether buried or left to lie on the surface of the ground.

Polystyrene is another land pollutant which does not biodegrade and if burned at a high enough temperature it will produce a small amount of ash, carbon dioxide, and some other volatile compounds.
