Tidal ‘wastes’ washed ashore

Mumbai not only witnessed the highest ever high-tide on its coastline but also saw a variety of non-biodegradable waste making its way from the sea into the city.

Around 640 tonnes (6.4 lakh kg) of waste comprising of plastic, polythene bags and thermocol (four times the average amount was dumped on the coast in three days) were washed ashore.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation used 107 heavy vehicles to ferry the waste collected to the Deonar dumping ground. Maximum waste was collected from the Juhu and Dadar beaches (1.18 lakh kg and 3.35 lakh kg respectively).
