This study aimed to evaluate the shear strength of municipal solid waste (MSW) of different landfilling ages exhumed from disposal sites in a subtropical humid environment. Wastes which had been landfilled from ages of 2 up to 25years were characterized using physical, chemical and biochemical tests and were tested in a large scale direct shear device.
