    The North Delhi Municipal Corporation wants to use GPS devices to monitor its garbage vehicles. https://www.hindustantimes.com/delhi-news/north-delhi-civic-body-to-equip-garbage-lifting-vehicles-with-gps/story-8cwsCczhufz7OsJDIgbxaP.html

    As per my knowledge, to naturalise and make it a green non toxic mound, the dumping of garbage to stop now, and it will take minimum 10 years to stabilize. And also needs large quantities of water daily reqd for stabilisation. To dump Delhi s garbage, there is no new land available ,nor the local population will allow others garbage to be dumped at their door step. Indian garbage are 90 percent wet garbage, unlike the garbage of developed countries, so can't be used for power generation,not financially viable for any energy companies .Delhi s garbage can't be sent to adjacent states, they will not accept. Identifying new landfills sites by agencies concerned have failed.Can not be dumped in Delhi s eco sensitivity areas. So situations of garbage dumping is a big problem in Delhi in future.If the solid waste management rules 2017 to be followed for locating the new landfills sites, no sites could be identified in Delhi, due to distance criteria of the sites wrt human habitation in Delhi. So the problem not getting solved by concerned agencies.

    I guess its advisable for the authority to take care of this. As "Corruption" is not the only Pollutant in Delhi. Take care of this as well, pls.
