That would be an example of eisegesis.

Eisegesis is an invalid form of interpretation where you put your own ideas into the text, ignoring the context.

The Bible shows that Hell is a place where souls are destroyed after death: Luke 12:5 "But I will forewarn you whom ye shall fear: Fear him, which after he hath killed hath power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him."
Matthew 10:28 "And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."

Matthew 25:41 mentions eternal fire which was designed for Satan and his angels which rebelled against God. A mere trash heap has a different purpose, and how could your suggestion correspond with the purpose laid out here?
