The presentation reviews practice and important developments in the technology of disposition of municipal wastewater sludge in sludge and sludge-refuse landfills. EPA's regulations of landfilling and this impact on the technology are presented. The increase in use of predictive models in the regulation and design of landfills is cited. New knowledge and developments in the technology of sludge and sludge-refuse landfills is presented. The recommendation is made that sludge and refuse be disposed together rather than to separate landfills in order to reduce total environmental impact.
