Municipal solid waste management is the collection, transportprocessing or disposal, managing and monitoring of waste materials. We need to consider an effective leachate management for the development of efficient municipal solid waste management.  Leachate means liquid that has percolated through municipal solid waste and contains dissolved and suspended materials from the solid waste. The present study was done by collecting the leachate samples from Mysore dumpy yard located in Karnataka. This study involves leachate sample analysis, control of leachate movement and proposal of a leachate management system. Through study an efficient management system for the leachate has been suggested.
