Abstract

Caring for the environment is one of the main criteria in the administration of
cities, therefore it is necessary to have places where waste generated in cities is
managed, between the optimal and the real there is a lot of difference This is why in
many countries and with emphasis on large cities, there are unofficial places where they
are used as municipal dumps, where large tons of solid waste are disposed of daily
without going through a selection and recycling mechanism. These dumps are growing
out of control and are almost becoming able to live with people. In the present work it is
proposed to present a methodology to be able to monitor these dumps and be evaluated
from space through the eyes of the observation satellites, which generate satellite
images, the methodology proposes a temporary review of the area where the dumps are
located In order to monitor its growth and analyze when it puts the urban population at
risk, the results are evaluated in the municipal dump called "El Milagro" located in the
vicinity of the city of Trujillo located north of Lima, Peru , the City of Trujillo is one of
the main cities of Lima, located to the north, it is in the vicinity of this city where one of
the largest dumps in Peru is developed. The results show that with the use of satellite
images, the growth of these dumps and their impact on the community can be verified
