A calculator, a search engine, and ten minutes.

Your pit is 914,400,000 cubic meters.

In 2002(StatsCan numbers-http://www42.statcan.ca/smr08/2006/smr08_023_2006-eng.htm)each person in Canada produced 971kg of garbage (these numbers include all solid waste- residential and industrial). That averages to 90 garbage bags per person. Each bag averages 67 litres. That's 6.03 cubic meters of garbage per person per year. Canada's population in 2009 was 33,739,900. That's 203,451,597 cubic meters of solid waste per year.

You'd have to get out your shovel and start a new pit in about four and a half years.
