Our paper is focused on verification of research of the impact of waste landfills on the environment, using bioindicators. The goal of this study was to find how plants may be used to indicate some of the emissions from landfill sites. Sampling was carried out in 2007-09 and 2011-12. The obtained data were compared with a simple floristic list prepared in 1995. Selected bioindicators were used to estimate, confirm, or deny the impact of the landfill on the close vicinity.
