This paper introduces the landfill siting problem by way of (usually ill-fated) examples. It then discusses different classes of decision-making models and formulates a generic cost-minimization model for that purpose. It continues to describe some multi-criteria decision models that have been used for landfill siting. The paper then surveys landfill location models that have appeared in the literature during the last forty years. The work concludes with a framework that “zooms in” and uses existing techniques to determine sites for solid waste facilities.
