Nowadays, municipal solid waste (MSW) management is one of the civil engineering and environmetally issues. Inappropriate management may lead to non-standard municipal waste landfill in all corners of the cities around the world. According to the standards of locating and isolating these areas, it is very important and crucial for engineers and managers to identify and recognize and monitor vulnerable areas to assess polluted ones and to prevent and rehab the probability of pollution-release in some cases. Moreover, it is crucial to investigate mechanical, geotechnical and geo environmental properties and other specification of the soil mass in such areas. In this research it is intended to analyze and evaluate the used methods to identify and estimate the municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills in three categories such as geophysical methods, in situ studies and laboratory experiments. This research introduces five different countries, Brazil, Scotland, Turkey, the U.S, China as case studies.
