This paper presents a methodological approach in determining location for regional landfill municipal solid waste. The initial phase of this approach is based on defining the criteria and determining the elimination criteria of elimination (unacceptable) to locate a landfill area using GIS tools. Then define the criteria used in multicriteria evaluating potentially suitable locations and perform their grouping in weight classes that have certain specific values - wei ghts. By multiplying the weights with the assessment of individual criteria are obtained quantitative values (rates) criteria, whose simple sum received final grades of potential sites. If two or more sites rated approximately the same grade, it is possible to further evaluate the different scenarios that decision-making entities may point out advantages and disadvantages of each of these application scenarios. The research results were applied in selecting the location of a regional landfill for the eleven municipalities of Kolubara regions which received the research applicability.
