Abstract: In modern economies, various types of activity, including agriculture, industry and transportation, produce a large amount of wastes and new types of pollutants. Soil, air and water have traditionally been used as sites for the disposal of all these wastes. Main aim of this present study was to investigate the effects of city rubbish dumping place on soil element concentrations in Kastamonu. Soil samples were taken from 5 locations (distances) (center, 100 m, 200 m, 300 m, 400 m and 2 km) and three directions (east, north and south) away from the city rubbish dumping place. The soil samples were taken randomly from 0-5cm, 5-10 cm, 10-15 cm and 15-20 cm soil depths by digging two soil pits at each sampling site. in our study It was noted that the concentrations of Cd decreased with the distance showing the highest concentration between the distance of (250 to 280 ppm), especially at dumpsite center, and decreased to (175 ppm) at 2 km away. But the concentrations were almost constant with the soil depths. As for as, the concentrations increased highly with the soil depths and almost equal with the distances.
