The story behind Delhi's immense landfill

This huge mountain of trash in India is growing at such a speed that it will soon be taller than the Taj Mahal, posing a threat to the health of residents living nearby.

    I can see that There are "almost soil" components on parts of your landfill... try sowing grass(any type) seeds on the landfill to lessen any toxicity of the trash that surrounds the area... when the grasses on the landfill are alive and green, then there is still hope for rehabilitation... these grasses will help in the process of biodegrading some of the components of the trash in the landfill...

    Well then do somthing about it seriously everyone is to blame at that point you can't feel bad if no one is making a point to stop a moutin of trash growing taller and taller .. we now have the technology to burn it thoroughly release No carbon emissions and turn into fertilizer for trees and yet you guys still sit here and let it grow it on you and your City , government and people

    1,600,000,000 and counting. If each one of them produces 1/2 og trash each day.... go figure. 800,000,000 lbs or 400,000 tons/day.
