India generates 150 million tonnes of waste in a day and most of it is left in the landfills at the city outskirts, leaving a stinking smell with vultures hovering over heaps of hazardous material. According to the Central Government, only 10-20% of the city waste is recycled in an environment-friendly way and the rest is allowed to lie in the landfills. The rich and industrialised nations are able to build capacities for sustainable development and recycle 60-70% of the waste they generate. Different wings of the government would work in unison through an inter-ministerial group and other stakeholders be part of the consultative process to deal with the task of reuse of waste.
