Abstract: This paper analyzes characteristic chemical indexes of the biological waste biodegradation at landfill sites in terms of sulphate concentrations, which are produced at Mid Auchencarroch experimental landfill bioreactor cells with different disposed waste composition and dynamic solid waste management biotechnology techniques. However, open surface leachate ponds should be operated for the proper treatment of produced leachate discharges and final recirculation of them. In addition a continuous monitoring of leachate pond installations on a landfill site should take place. Special maintenance and confrontation works should be given on leachate treatment units, when there are displacements on ground surfaces due to geological layer movement by natural collapses. A useful methodology for the latter case is presented for spatial monitoring of leachate pond units on a topographic surface so as to calculate displacements in time and to risk assess the operation of a liner under these conditions. Image processing principles are discussed for environmental investigation and protection. Useful conclusions are presented for efficient solid waste management units not only to avoid associated risks to any surrounded land uses next to landfill boundaries but also for public
