Improper solid waste management at final disposal site can cause in environtmental problem. The surrounding water bodies could be affected by leachate from the solid waste decomposition process because leachate contains high concentration of BOD5, COD, ammonia, hydrocarbon suspended solid, and heavy metals. This problem has affected a final disposal site (named Sukawinatan) in Palembang, Indonesia, which did not implement leachate management system. This paper propose a method to reduce BOD5, COD, Ammonia concentrations of the leachate in by applying composite nano zero valent iron (NZVI) – activated carbon for the remediation system of the surrounding area of Sukawinatan final disposal. The performance of the method was evaluated in this study using laboratory porous column apparatus. The results showed that the composite NZVI-activated carbon can be used to reduce concentration of pollutants from water bodies. The removal efficiency of this method on BOD5, COD and ammonia are 94.81 %, 92.81 % dan 95.58 % respectively.
