This paper presents an assessment of potential environmental impacts for eight planned
non-hazardous regional landfills in Macedonia. Waste quantities for each waste
management region and landfill capacities are estimated. Expected leachate quantities
are calculated using Water Balance Method. Analyses and comparison of the likely
landfill leachate per capita are presented, demonstrating that higher rates of leachate are
generated per capita in waste management regions with higher annual sums of rainfall.
An assessment of the potential landfill impacts on the water environment taking into
consideration local geology and hydrogeology conditions is presented. Some general
measures for leachate treatment that are in compliance with the modern EU standards are
indicated. The goal of the study is to facilitate a better understanding about the
sustainable waste management practices in cases of landfilling of municipal solid waste.
