Site selection for waste disposal is a complex task that should meet the requirements of communities and stakeholders. In particular the problems of disposal of damp olive residues and the wastewater left over from the mechanical pressing of the olives has induced the local administration “Città Metropolitana di Roma Capitale”, following the directives of the law n˚ 574/96, to individuate the areas in which is permitted to spread the refuse to be used as compost; such refuse must respect the requirements as to “quality” as defined by the characteristics established by the law of October 19, 1984, n˚ 748, and its successive modifications. The areas in question have been determined by carrying out a comparison between the maps of the hydrological network, the morphology of the terrain, and that pertaining to protected areas, paying particular attention to terrains with a higher permeability in order to avoid the seepa ge of the residue waters into the underground water table. © 2015, Asociatia Geographia Technica.
