Abstract

Landfills are an inevitable consequence of the national economy, and the total recycling of rigid (solid) waste is not possible. Quantity and quality of solid waste disposed in the first place depends on the degree of economic and cultural development of society. Strategy for waste disposal are determined by the politics, while behind the applied methods of waste disposal, consciously or unconsciously concealed ethical, social and economic principles of society. Waste management strategy is crucial to the overall system of waste management. What a dump better defined in terms of geochemical boundary conditions in space and time, needed a better treatment of waste deposited. Thus, developed countries have the concept of integrated waste management and legislation for the construction of sanitary landfill and rehabilitation of existing ones. Leachate is now recognized as one of the biggest problems associated with landfill operations. The liquid waste is causing significant pollution problems in contact with the soil, groundwater or surface water. The study shows that environmental risk posed by waste disposal should be evaluated by an integrated chemical, microbiological and ecotoxicological monitoring programs. The ultimate goal is to protect human health and the environment, about engineers, knowledge and experience dependent selection methods and techniques that are trying to achieve a goal.
