Abstract

While the industrial growth in the last 30 years has grown, hence consequent Toxic Releases have grown. The central Ministry of Environment and Forests (MOEF) has estimated a conservative figure of 5 million tons of hazardous waste generation every year in India. Million liters of organic/inorganic waste generated by no of pharmaceutical companies. They disposed their hazardous waste into the environment directly or indirectly which causes serious environment problems thus it is required to establish a hazardous waste landfill to dispose waste on land. The main aim of this study is to compare a physico-chemical behavior and geotechnical characteristics of soil (SM) influenced by pharmaceutical waste with and without landfill. the soil to waste ratio is 5:1 another pan of soil is taken with the same soil waste ratio then compare properties such as specific gravity, permeability ,atterberg’s limit ,OMC ,MDD ,shear strength and also chemical testing such as PH has been conducted on 30,60 days period of virgin soil, soil in contaminated pan and soil in contaminated landfill.
