reached its capacity, the Okhla sanitary landfill site is under tremendous
pressure. As no alternative is available, nearly 2,700 metric tonne (MT)
garbage is still dumped every day here. Alarmed with the prevailing situation,
the SDMC is thinking of ways to resolve the issue. The civic body has planned
to set up three recycling plants for construction and demolition (C&D)
waste where debris would be crushed and converted into tiles. As per an
estimate, the Okhla site receives 1,000MT of construction waste from all four
zones in south Delhi.
