Currently there is an effort put on waste recovery, recycling, yet neither of EU-28
countries including Norway and Switzerland cannot exist without tipping their waste. In Slovakia, there are only 2 communal waste incinerations and for this reason, most of the solid waste is going to landfill. All together there are 118 landfills in Slovakia, which are divided into three classes of landfill. Their uneven distribution in the territory is reflected in the so-called illegal dumps. Because all landfills have in compliance with waste management determined its period of activity and several landfills will be closed in the upcoming years, it is necessary to ensure that new landfills are built in such places that the entire territory of Slovakia will be evenly covered. This paper provides an analysis of existing landfills and proposed optimal completion of various categories of landfills including their location, by which the requirements of waste management will be met.

Keywords: landfills, waste, waste management.
