BACKGROUND
Bangalore city alone generates around 3,000 tonnes of solid waste every day. This waste largely comes from households, commercial enterprises, educational institutions and corporate offices. All solid waste in cities is supposed to be managed as per the Municipal Solid Waste Management and Handling Rules outlined by the Supreme Court of the country.

This legislation makes it mandatory for waste
    • To be segregated at source
• To be managed locally without any open burning and
• Final disposal to take place in a scientific landfill.

Currently the implementation of these rules is very poor. Thus, solid wastes, which can actually help conserve natural resources is now considered a threat to human health and the environment.
