No space to treat toxic waste

Source: Times of India, Date: May , 2014

With no space to build a hazardous waste treatment plant, Delhi is going through a massive crisis. Its efforts to build a treatment plant in Ghuman Hera, Kanjhawala and Bawana have failed because of a variety of reasons. Chief among these are the 'not in my backyard' stance of local communities and litigation over land.
 
Delhi government had also requested neighbouring states earlier if they could provide land for treating the capital's hazardous waste but got no response. Now, National Green Tribunal, which heard the issue on Monday, has issued notices to the state governments of Rajasthan, Haryana and Delhi to see how the crisis can be solved.
