Abstract: 
The site selection of landfill is one of the most important steps of municipal solid waste management. Due to environmental, ecological and economical problems of unsuitable landfill sites, the land fill site must be selected carefully and by scientific process. In this study, firstly the main criteria proposed for landfill site selections were presented by some of the researchers, then the parameters used in this study were introduced. In this study, several GIS layers including geology, topography, land use, vegetation, permeability, hydrology, hydrogeology, roads access and settlement were prepared. The unpermitted areas of the proposed ones were excluded and the landfill susceptibility map has been produced by rating of the10 remaining layers. Finally, five candidate sites were proposed: municipal proposed in the northeast and southeast of Golpaygan.
