Characterization of Soil Near Solid Waste Dumping Sites - A Review
Keywords:Soil sample, Solid waste, Physico-chemical, Geotechnical constituents
Disposal of solid wastes has become one of the major problems in urban and semi-urban areas. Inappropriate disposal of solid waste is a huge problem in India. Segregation of waste is not at all practiced in our country. Precipitation that infiltrates through the municipal solid waste. In the present study an attempt has been made to evaluate the repercussion of municipal solid waste on the properties of soil at a landfill sits. Soil profile pits were excavated before and after trash positioning. Soil samples were tested for geotechnical properties such as liquid limit, compaction characteristics, permeability, and UCS and shear strength. Results were compared for their physico-chemical properties of soil. The study implements that disposal of solid wastes has altered the color and texture of the receiving ground soil with gradual increase in physico-chemical and chemical and geotechnical constituents. It was been seen that increase in organic matter content and interactions of the metals with the organic content (adsorption and complex formation) are the reasons for high values of the tested ingredient in soil after the refuse is dumped in soil.
