Bengaluru Chokes on its Own Waste

From handling only 200 tonnes of garbage per day in 2000/01, the Bengaluru city corporation had to deal with 3,700 tonnes in 2015, that is a rise in workload by over 17 times (1,750 per cent). During the same time, its population—which generates the largest amount of waste— grew by just 60 per cent. Bengaluru's garbage generation rate surged more than all other major cities barring New Delhi. Delhi's garbage generation grew by over 2,000 per cent in the same period, Kolkata 8.34 per cent, Chennai 60.05 per cent, Ahmedabad 48.5 per cent, and Mumbai 105.41 per cent.
