Abstract: Despite being a major urban need to create sustainable and healthy living areas, waste management services are not always properly and equally offered to all inhabitants due to inappropriate resource management approaches, high volumes of urban waste and ignorant consumption habits. From this point, waste transfer stations are considered as helpful solutions to facilitate the waste management process in territories which have different type of settlements and population density. In this context, the main aim of this study is to determine the potential suitable locations for waste transfer stations, which is expected to prevent the disposal of approximately 104,196.3 kg of waste directly into the rural area within the study area, Eskisehir province. To fulfil the aim of the study, geographical information systems (GIS) technologies were utilized for the performance of comprehensive spatial analyses and weighted overlay of a wide range of different data layers. The results showed that 1.1% of the study area were appropriate for the establishment of waste transfer stations, and GIS, as spatial data analysis tool, makes significant contributions to the knowledge of sustainability in the study areas.
