ABSTRACT
This article contains a review of literature on the quantity and physico – chemical characteristics of leachates from municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The state of knowledge on estimation of hazard landfills through toxicity testing of leachates by use of aquatic organisms is also presented. There is little information in Poland regarding the harmful effects of leachate waters on aquatic biocenoses.
