Abstract: Urban India generates 188,500 tons per day of waste – an average rate of 500 grams of waste per person per day.1 Delhi, the nation’s capital, produces nearly 8,0002 metric tons of solid waste every day. The average per capita waste generation in India is 370 grams/day as compared to 2,200 grams in Denmark, 2,000 in the US and 700 in China.3 Five municipal authorities are responsible for solid waste management in Delhi. There are three landfill sites: Bhalswa landfill site, Ghazipur sanitary landfill site and Okhla sanitary landfill site.4 Bhalswa was commissioned in 1994, Ghazipur in 1984 and Okhla in 1996. These landfill sites are not designed as per Schedule 3 of the Municipal Solid Waste (Management and Handling).
