A parliamentary panel has rapped the government for not giving due attention to the solid waste generation and management despite its "potentially devastating ramifications”. The panel also said that waste collection efficiency in the country is also "very low" as it ranges from 70-90 per cent in metros and below 50 per cent in small cities. Standing Committee on Urban Development presented its report 'Solid waste management (SWM) including hazardous waste, medical waste and e-waste' in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday.
