Bengaluru population has been growing at a rate of 2.8 to 3.20 percent per year during the last two decades. Bengaluru city alone generates 5000 tons of waste every day & the number is likely to grow in the next 5 years due to increasing population. About 60% of this fraction constitute organic waste, while the remaining consists recyclables & sanitary waste. A small portion of this waste is recycled & the remaining gets burnt. To reduce the mixing of waste & sending recyclables to landfills, highcourt has mandated highly progressive judgement taking into consideration both short term & long term objectives to resolve the prevailing crises of waste management.
