Effluent from the synthetic dyes and textile factories. over 20 % of Ahmadabad population has no access to clean water due to contamination by these textile factories. Awareness , policies , and replacing synthetic chemicals with natural dyes more

There should be some mechanism - collection centers, special dump yards for hazardous waste like CFL bulbs, battery cells. more  
Among the hazardous waste issues, we have to think of collecting, disposing and above all making people aware of sanitary waste at household level - along with biodegradable waste, paper, plastic, e-waste, etc. more
