Over the past decades, uncontrolled population growth and rapid urbanization and industrialization have resulted in environmental problems. One of the most important problems is inadequate solid waste management. Nowadays, increasing public awareness of the environment compels local authorities to define and to adopt new solutions for waste management. Although there are some efforts to reduce and recover the waste, disposal in landfills is still the most common method for waste destination. Therefore, the recycle facility should be selected carefully by considering both regulations and constraints on other sources. In this study, candidate site for an appropriate solid waste facility area in Al-Wihda sub district in Baghdad city is determined by using The GPS coordinates (Latitude 33 07.674N Longitude 4442.420 E), according to the EIA legal (Category B) in article 24, 48 for landfill and solid waste management facility number (3) 2011 based on law number (27) 2009. The selected site serves a population of Al-Madain districts (461107 capita), and covered area about 53.64 km2. Area method has been choosing in the proposed design because the level of groundwater in this reign is so high, also the amount of predict solid waste has been calculated for next ten years 2371174.7 ton. A sample of solid waste was taken to identify the quality of the waste shows that it contents (steel, aluminum, plastic, glass, paper, carton and temper) which can be recycled. A set of experimental tests have been done to evaluate and monitor the environmental impact of pollutant on the surrounding area of the proposed project at the present and future time. From which was mentioned above, the selected location is suitable for constriction the solid waste facility according to the EIA legal (Category B) in article 24, 48 for landfill and solid waste management facility number (3) 2011 based on law number (27) 2009, therefore we recommend implementing this necessary project.
