On the top of the ecological priority list in Romania, waste management is on the third place following the problems regarding the surface and underground water pollution, as well as that of the atmosphere. The clean-up of the landscape represents an issue largely discussed in Romania. The paper presents the advantages of waste management for the landscape, which includes: waste gathering and transfer, waste selection, waste biological treatment and the storage.
Some analyses of the constituent components of the soil are presented, in order to assess the possibility to use the compost obtained from waste household within a composting station in agricultural sector of the district of Gorj. The experimental data demonstrated the possibility of using the compost as a fertilizer on the agricultural fields.By applying good management and treatment practices of the household wastes, one may achieve long-tern economic objectives such as: the improvement of public health as well as the protection of the natural resources by diminishing the soil, water and air contamination.
