Waste Management Research Auroville

Solid waste management in India can only be described as being at crisis point. Provision of technically sound infrastructure and services has not kept pace with the growing production of waste as the population and economy of India has expanded. Basic disposal facilities are inadequate; resulting in health hazards and highly degraded visual landscapes. The haphazard proliferation of dumping grounds on the outskirts of towns pose a series threat to human health and ground water quality. The sites can not be reclaimed, as they have not been landfilled scientifically, resulting in the creation of long term wastelands.
