Our paper presents a detailed comparative analysis and methodology of selection of a reclamation procedure for the Górka hazardous waste landfill in Trzebinia, Poland. The most favorable solution offered by the authors is based on the measurable evaluation criteria and the decision analysis. Evaluation criteria have been selected to meet the assumptions of a sustainable development concept and take into account ecological, economical, and social aspects of the analyzed options. At the same time, the most favorable technical and technological solutions have been proposed. The principal conditions of the properly carried out reclamation include:
• Permanent elimination of harmful environmental effects caused by the solid waste landfill and leachate from the reservoir, mainly through reduced emission of pollutants to ground and surface waters.
• Reclamation of soil within the disused quarry up to the standards required by Polish Law.
• Reclamation and land development according to municipal zoning plan guidelines.
