India has a major municipal garbage problem
75% of India’s municipal garbage is dumped without processing
This was revealed by Ministry of Urban Affairs’ report
Tamil Nadu, Haryana, West Bengal & Jharkhand...
...don’t even process 10% of their municipal garbage
Whereas Arunachal Pradesh & Dadra & Nagar Haveli don’t process at all
That means waste isn’t getting segregated
Only 4 states process more than 60% of municipal garbage
Delhi processes 55% of its daily garbage
Instead, municipal bodies are dumping garbage to overflowing landfill sites...
...according to Centre for Science & Environment (CSE)
In September 2017, 2 people died due to Ghazipur’s landfill collapse
Will these alarming numbers get the state authorities to act?
