Urban waste disposal is a serious problem in India due to the following reasons:
- Concentration of industrial units in and around urban centres gives rise to disposal of industrial wastes
- The dumping of wastes, industrial or otherwise, will render water bodies around urban areas usable.
- Lack of suitable dumping grounds due to high population density
- Inefficient waste management policies on the part of the municipal authorities concerned.
