Landfill is still the primary means to deal with municipal solid waste (MSW) in many countries, and it will predominate as the primary treatment method for waste residues in the long run. However, landfills have the potential to exacerbate some environmental problems including instability failure, leachate leakage, and landfill gas emission. To avoid the occurrence of these environmental issues and to achieve the goal of safe and sustainable landfills, a large amount of effort by both engineers and researchers is still necessary.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect a wide range of studies regarding safe and sustainable landfills; both research articles and review articles as well as case studies are welcome for submission. The potential areas and topics include, but are not limited to, the following: (1) aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation of MSW in landfills; (2) basic properties of MSW and fly ash; (3) leachate and gas flow in landfills; (4) thermal properties of MSW and temperature in landfills; (5) coupled behaviors of MSW and landfill safety; (6) evaluation and assessments of landfill; (7) field measurement and tests in landfills; (8) environmental issues in and around landfills; (9) recycle and reuse of landfill resources; (10) policy and regulations about landfills.
Other topics related to MSW management and landfill safety are also welcome. This Special Issue is expected to provide innovative and sustainable techniques for waste disposal in landfills, and to enhance the understanding of safe disposal and sustainable landfills for human beings.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
