Banyuurip landfill generates leachate containing suspended and dissolved matter, including some heavy metals, a result of waste degradation and decomposition of organic materials. Leachate can infiltrate the soil then contaminate groundwater. Once the leachate infiltration reaches the soil and groundwater, it will contaminate the surrounding environment. In this study, the contamination of leachate into ground water was investigated by measuring the concentration of Manganese (Mn), Iron (Fe) and Free Ammonia (NH3-N) in leachate and dug wells surrounding the landfill. The concentration of Mn, Fe and NH3-N in leachate was found to be 5.42 mg/L, 6.16 mg/L, and 1652 mg/L, respectively. The concentration in the surrounding dug wells located within 500 m from the landfill varied from 0.00 – 0.86 mg/L for free ammonia, 0.00 – 0.31 mg/L for total Fe, and 0.00 – 0.26 mg/L for total Mn. The concentration of Mn, Fe and NH3-N decrease with increasing distance between the landfill and wells.
