We already do mine in a sense for methane in landfillls. The first time I saw it I just thought someone was using common sense for the first time. As for mining landfills I can definitely see that happening in the near future. Some of the older landfills in the country could be loaded with aluminum, gold, nickel, copper, chrome, and other metals used extensively and just dumped because that's how everyone did things in the last century.
