The rise in community living standards have greatly accelerated the municipal solid waste generation rate in Bangalore. Bangalore, a city of 10 million, produces some 4,000 metric tonnes of waste daily. Nearly a fourth of this is plastic waste. Total waste could get capped at 20 per cent of the current quantity if measures are taken to segregate and correctly dispose at the waste generation point.
