Sanitary landfills presently play a significant role in the disposal of solid wastes, and they will probably continue to do so in many areas because of their economic advantages over other methods. However, justifiable concern exists about the environmental effects of sanitary landfills. The research project described here was undertaken to provide a better understanding of the processes that occur within a sanitary landfill and the related environmental effects. The initial field-scale test cell was completed in June 1971 and has been monitored since then for temperature, gas composition, settlement, and leachate quantity and characteristics. Four additional cells (2A, 2B, 2C, and 2D) were constructed during August 1972. One of these was field-scale (2D), and the others were small-scale cells that simulated the large cell for the purpose of performance comparison. Water input to the cells was controlled, and all cells were monitored for temperature, gas composition, settlement, and leachate quantity and characteristics.
