How would you translate a modern word like 'landfill' to Latin?

@Anhedonia,
First, search the 'Net to see whether it's already been done.
Second, read definitons and explanations of the word to be sure you really understand it.
Third, find out how the word is translated into modern Romance languages.
Fourth, see whether the ways in which words have been combined in Latin would apply to this one.
Fifth, if all else fails, translate it as a phrase rather than a word.
