Abstract: A study was conducted to evaluate the physical, microbiological, and chemical conditions of nineteen experimental landfills after the completion of a ten-year long municipal refuse/industrial sludge co-disposal project. Comparisons between municipal refuse-only cells and municipal refuse/industrial sludge co-disposal cells were made in order to evaluate the effect the industrial sludges had on the decomposition process. This report also describes the termination of a five-year, pilot-scale project that evaluated methane production and gas enhancement techniques in sanitary landfills. Data collected during this termination study consisted of characterization of the trace volatile constituents of the gas generated by the experimental landfills and microbiological analysis of the refuse.
