Nowadays, the need of efficient methods of waste disposal and further treatment are required most than never, due to high rate of worldwide usage of primary matter and resulting waste. This matter is also strongly linked to the ecosystem challenges and healthcare problems, raising serious challenges all around the world. The negative impact on the environment and human health still represents a risk to human health as a result of waste disposal related to inappropriate methods and technologies for waste handling, Sustainable development is conditioned by environmental protection and waste management plays an important role in the concept of sustainable development. Even if waste does represent one of the most important source of pollution, but properly managed, it can also be used as a source for secondary raw materials, with the proper management. By landfill we mean a site for the final disposal of waste by landfill or underground. Final disposal of waste, if the waste cannot be recovered, it must be disposed of safely for the environment and human health, with a strict monitoring program. At EU level, municipal waste is treated by landfill (38%), incineration (22%), recycling (25%) and composting (15%). Actual situation in Romania, still has to deal with storage as the dominant method for waste disposal. Controlled storage is widely used in the world and remains the main system for storing and neutralizing household waste until processing systems for the selection and recovery of materials and potential energy will develop and gain priority in their application. The current legislation on the development of waste storage, leads to the progressive reduction of recyclable waste.. This paper describes the activity of controlled waste storage and monitoring system in the landfill of non-hazardous waste in Ghizela commune, Timiș county.
