As the final disposal of municipal solid waste (MSW), landfill, is the oldest and the most common form of removal and disposal of waste. It is well known that the impact of MSW landfills can cause pollution of all environmental components. The negative environmental impact of landfills can be reduced by applying protection technologies and appropriate solid waste management technologies. The present study undertook monitoring of the Štěpánovice MSW landfill influence on the environment. The spatial characteristics of the area impacted by the landfill and the possible impact of leachate using phytotoxicity tests was carried out. The landfill itself is engineered, with bottom liner and leachate and landfill gas collection and treatment system. The landfill has not direct and significant influence on surrounding environment and water quality so far.
