WAS JUST READING A FEW DAYS AGO THAT SIMPLE MALBA (BUILDING DEMOLITION AND NEW CONSTRUCTIONS) CREATE RECYCLEABLE WASTE WHICH CAN BUILD ROADS.
AND IN DELHI GROUP HOUSING SOCIEITIES HAVE TO SPEND THEIR SOURCES ON BUILDING ROADS WHEREAS DDA FLATS GOVER...NMENT BUILDS ROADS. IF WE JUST RECYCLE THIS MALBA ENTIRE INNER ROADS OF DELHI CAN BE REBUILT BY THIS MALBA more  
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  
A lot of people do not know which objects are hazardous wastes and so they negligently throw them away without proper recycling/disposal methods. Awareness to people should be spread across the country.

No ways to dispose of wastes are provided by the municipality. People just throw them into dustbins. 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
