The North and South Municipal Corporations of New Delhi have slammed the Delhi Development Authority for not providing it with new sites to dump waste. The DDA has banned dumping in three of the four dumping grounds due to overflowing. But with no new sites in place, over three corporations still use these sites to dump waste. The city generates over 7000 to 9000 tonnes of waste daily. With dumping banned in three of its dumping ground due to overflow, a single ground at Narela-Bawana now caters to the whole city. The Corporations are looking forward to reserving 1,500 acres of land to cater to the needs of the city by setting up solid waste processing plants and sanitary landfills, under its Master Plan Delhi 2021.
