What is it about?
Improper selection of Solid Waste disposal sites is among the leading issues compronting municipal Authorities particularlt in developing nations. outbreak of so many diseases and epidemics are related to improper site select of waste. Various techniques were used to identify improper disposal site in the area. No adays, sophisticated method which were tested and found to be easier than the conventional ones.

The present Study is an extension of this one. in 2017 I with my co-author publish a our first work on solid waste disposal site selection in "Journal of Geoscience and Environment Protection, http://www.scirp.org/journal/gep. DOI: 10.4236/" From there I pick interest in modeling the disposal sites using GIS multicriteria decision making.
