Bangalore: From Garden City to Garbage City

  • Published 01/01/70

Bangalore is one of the fastest-growing cities in the world. With a population approaching 9 million, it produces around 4000 tonnes of solid waste each day. Most of this is dumped in land fill sites near villages on the city’s outskirts. But is this the best way of dealing with the waste problem? Are there other solutions less damaging to both people and the environment? This film is about what happens to Bangalore’s waste, the controversies that it has provoked, and some of the potential solutions.
