Solid Waste Management in India includes the entire process of dealing with solid waste:

Solid Waste Management

Solid Waste Management and waste dump is a major problem in India. According to official estimations, around 62 million tonnes of solid waste is generated from all over the country annually.
Recently, the collapse of a great wall of garbage in east Delhi’s Ghazipur area served as a stark reminder to the authorities of India's neglected waste management crisis. New Delhi generates more than 10,000 tonnes of garbage on a daily basis, posing a public safety hazard particularly in the dumping sites.
The extent of the current Waste Management crisis is understood by the very fact that only 80 percent of waste that is generated in urban areas is collected and merely 28 percent of it is collected and dumped.
The waste dump sites in most Indian cities are presently overburdened. Urban landfill sites having biodegradable waste are a major cause of odour pollution often leading to headaches, anxiety, nausea, sleep disorders among others.
A study found out that more than three-fourths of solid waste management in India budget is allotted to collection and transportation, leaving very little for processing or resource recovery and disposal of waste.

Issues in solid waste management in India include:

  • Lack of scientific and systematic storage of waste at source originating from the problem of waste segregation
  • Waste Dump sites are left unattended leading to serious environmental issues.
  • At source, people generally don’t arrange to provide proper dustbins for segregated waste in residential as well as commercial areas.
