Experimental studies on small-scale bioreactor landfills treating mechanically and biologically treated waste under aerobic and anaerobic conditions are presented in this study. The waste was collected from one of the Municipal Solid waste processing units of Bangalore City. The performance of the bioreactors in terms of organic content, gas emissions and settlement are presented here. The monitoring was carried out for a period of 300 and 380 days for aerobic and anaerobic bioreactors respectively. The aerobic reactor produced about 21.5 L of carbondioxide within 150 days and the anaerobic bioreactor produced 20.9 L of biogas in 380 days of operation. Results indicate that the waste can be degraded in a short time period in aerobic bioreactors and achieve almost the same degree of settlement in comparison to the anaerobic bioreactors. © Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.
