Abstract—This paper presents a solution to the problem of selecting waste disposal site for a municipal area. This methodology is based on the data available from Google Earth, IRS 1C LISS III and GIS database. The method presented here was applied to a case study of Gondia Municipal Council for selecting suitable waste disposal site and it is found that this is a very effective procedure and can be successfully used in selection of waste disposal sites for other cities. The method is mainly based on the following parameters- bedrocks depth, slope of ground, water table depth, soil types, permeability etc. and the weight ages are given to these parameters and the best site is selected on the basis of the scores secured in respect of these important parameters. The efficacy of solid waste disposal depends upon selection of proper site and there are several issues that have impact for site selection. The ultimate aim of this study is to select a site for Gondia Municipal Council for Municipal Solid Waste disposal where the further most protection of the environment is achieved. The proposed site selection is a part of environmental planning for sustainable development of the area, where the principal part is of problem to select landscape that is functionally safe non-hazardous, environmental protective and economically viable. 

Index Terms—solid waste (MSW), site sensitivity index (SSI)
