Landscape provides material resources, which people use to the extent possible for their own needs. For some time these resources are using and when they cease to serve its purpose, they become waste. The rise in industrial production, urban sprawl and mass use of plastic are the main cause of increase of waste. People, unlike nature, are creating the kinds of waste that nature itself cannot cope.
In this paper we present a methodology for assessing the landscape potential for locating landfills. On the basis of this methodology, we determine the most appropriate sites for the localization of landfills in the microregion Minčol in Slovakia. The landscape potential for locating landfills we understand as a landscape ability to adopt foreign substances without penetration into the relations between landscape elements.
For the purposes of the highest level of detail in assessing the potential of GIS environment was created basic square evaluation grid (square dimensions 0,5 km2) in area of microregion 125,92 km2. 559 squares were created together. This grid was then added as an additional layer to the individual analytical maps, and within each square were assigned standard point values for each attribute whose assessment is relevant to the landscape potential for the localization of the landfills of waste. To assess the potential were selected crucial criteria and determine the significance (weight value) of each criteria (classification characteristics).
The summary points resulting in each square belongs to a particular degree of suitability of landscape potential for the localization of the landfills. The potential was divided into five degrees (intervals): very negative potential, negative potential, moderate positive potential, positive potential and very positive potential.
