what does the garbage company do with landfill trash?
when they throw our trash into the landfill what do they do with it from there out?

It goes to a land fill. Typically, there are gravel pits/mines which are huge holes. The trash is dumped in the hole and covered. Sometimes they build a mountain. Typically all of it fits to a long range urban plan like it will eventually be turned into a city park with trees and a 500 foot tall mountain sticking above the flat prairie.

they fill the landfill till its full. Then they cap it. And eventually thousands of years from now it will be dirt again.

It gets buried with dirt and fill eventually.

If it is a garbage collection company they just take it to the land fill and dump it. If it is a waste management company then they remove the things that can be recycled, compost the stuff that can be used compost, turn the wood into wood chips and etc. Done right then they only have to dump 10% out. Whatever gets put in the landfill gets compressed and covered with dirt.
