Impact assessment of the municipal solid landfill on environment: a case study
Keywords: final disposal of waste, landfill, waste water, environment impact, landfill surrounding
Landfilling is a method for disposal of waste. Impact of landfills on the environment is currently a crucial topic
and attracted increased attention recently because they are sources of potential risks and environment pollution.
Apart from the pollution risk to both surface and underground water, realistic is also the contamination
of soils. The main purpose of the present study was to analyse the influence of landfills on the environment.
The conducted research was focused on the assessment of the toxicity of leachates and soils in the managed
municipal solid waste landfill in Těmice (the Czech Republic). Research results showed the soil collected
from the active landfill body exhibited higher toxicity as compared with the samples taken from the outside
of waste storage activities. Leachates from the landfill exhibited phytotoxic effects and this is why they have
to be considered and handled as the wastewater.
