Abstract
India is turning into one of the biggest garbage dumps. Current status of waste production in India includes 62 million tonnes of Municipal waste,500 to 700 million tonnes of Construction and Demolition waste, 208 million tonnes of Industrial waste, 1.5 lakh tonnes of Biomedical waste and 8 lakhs tonnes of Electronic waste every year. If we are in need to dispose those wastes, we should need around 1750 acres of land. At times, the "highly polluting" unprocessed solid waste in the dump sites will pollute the land and environment. In this manner, end-of-pipe innovation to oversee waste after it has been created was most rehearsed game-plan. By then came the reduce, reuse and recycle of waste. Presently, waste management is the altering tool for accomplishing manageability and round economy.
