The article describes the main stages of professional work, scientific priorities, and educational activities of Professor Tsitsino Turkadze. The main results of joint research with a special international consortium for coordination of similar research on municipal solid waste management - determining the waste composition as function of economic, social, and seasonal changes; assessing future material and contaminant flows, considering different scenarios; quantifying and assessing the material resources and reserves from landfills. The article discusses the educational activities carried out in the high school to implementing modern research results in higher education programs and teaching.
