The existing dump site is not the relevant way to handle all of the waste anymore. In this grow town the land was used to build residential area and building for education purpose. Therefore, it is hard to find any land that left for landfill site. Finding a suitable site for a landfill is a complex task as the site will be selected by a few of criteria listed. Wrong site must be avoided as landfill can be one of the reasons pollutions involving water, atmosphere and soil. In a simple word, a landfill can be the reason a few pollutions occur. The criteria that must be followed are the distance from protected area, the distance from rivers, the distance from road and the distance from the residential areas. ArcGIS 10.0 was used to ease the research in find the suitable sites. ArcGIS 10.0 was used to process the spatial data, to create the buffer zone, overlay the maps and the last result shown in the potential area map.
