The sustainable landfilling concept has several advantages over conventional waste management practices in addressing various socio-economic and environmental concerns. This study presents an overview of the sustainable landfilling concept and various unit processes associated with it. The waste management approaches followed in the city of Bangalore and the benefits of applying the sustainable landfilling concept are discussed. A review of the bioreactor landfills, landfill mining, and biocover systems are presented. Laboratory scale bioreactor studies on the degradation of mechanically and biologically treated waste of Bangalore city under anaerobic, aerobic, and semi-aerobic conditions are presented. The performance of bioreactor landfills and the selection of waste treatment units are greatly influenced by the municipal solid waste properties and hence are reviewed in the study. © 2021, Indian Institute of Science.
