Due to population growth, industrialization, urbanization and economic growth, a trend of significant increase in municipal solid waste (MSW) generation has been recorded worldwide. The shear strength properties of MSW slopes are highly variable due to waste decomposition with time or with introduction of new material on top of the slope. Therefore careful slope stability analysis must be performed in order to model parameter uncertainty and how this may affect overall stability. This paper pertains to a study on the reliability evaluation of MSW slopes under a probabilistic framework. The results of the analysis are compared and discussed in the light of conventional factor of safety approach. The slope stability analysis is conducted on the various landfill models using the computer software SLOPE/W.
