ABSTRACT

The main difficulty in choosing a preferential location of a number of possible sites is
the fact that the environmental impact generated by each site can not be easily
quantified. When choosing such a location it must also be taken into consideration to
minimize risks to public health, minimize environmental impact, maximize service
levels to users, and minimize the usage costs. In the “Timisoara” case, placing a
Landfill Site was a thorny issue that was resolved quite difficultly.
