Abstract: Accurate assessment the safety of landfills is an important task. However, it is still difficult to evaluate the safety of landfills, because this problem involved many influence factors of environmental conditions, historical hazards, geologic status, engineering planning, seismic impact, phenology and so on. In this study, the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Delphi method are combined to investigate the influence factors of landfill safety and calculate the risk degree on sloping land. Based on the results of evaluated safety and the calculated risk of each sanitary landfill, a safety criterion of sanitary landfill will be developed using the site survey data at 66 landfills on sloping land in Taiwan. The results show that the safety criterion is suitable for checking the safety of sanitary landfill in hillside.
