Bangalore's Toxic Legacy: Investigating Mavallipura's illegal landfills

A brief of a report prepared by Environment Support Group, Bangalore

Press Release : Bangalore : 4 August 2010
A brief of a report prepared by Environment Support Group, Bangalore

The illegal municipal solid waste management landfills at Mavallipura, apart from inflicting extensive damage on the local community, also point to a larger systemic failure in the management of our urban spaces. We may have turned our backs on the grave and urgent problem of waste disposal in our cities, but events that transpired at Mavallipura have demonstrated how far-reaching the consequences are of such irresponsible and unjust disposal of solid waste.
