Garbage menace is causing lots of discomfort and the accumulation is causing many health diseases to bear as well. The influx of garbage through human waste and the construction material make the people hard pressed to dispose of the waste. Waste management should work in co-ordination with BMC and find amicable solution. In India we do not have an action plan to dispose waste and thereby the accumulation could not be controlled. Thus we should also find ways to dispose of waste in a planned way without affecting the health of people. Just disposing the same in sea or through the drainage system will further pollute sea water and clog the drainage system and block the free flow of water as well. It is time to take remedial steps to make sure that the Garbage accumulated is recycled as far as possible through tested methods and not affecting the environment.
