Statistics show that in 2001 India generated 46 million tonnes of waste and by 2048 this number is predicted to reach an estimate of 125 million tonnes, making India the largest waste contributor of the world.
There is no proper mechanism to monitor the segregation of waste for proper treatment.
Neither there are any 'Smart Bins' installed, which use sensors for segregating wastes.
Poor waste management leads to hazards like environmental degradation, water pollution, soil pollution, and air pollution.
Communities who do not segregate their waste while disposing it.
