At over 300 sites across India hazardous waste is part of the landscape and life

At over 300 sites across India hazardous waste is part of the landscape and life
- To be precise 4440 tones of chromium residue lies beneath the ground on which the settlement is built. People who live there are unaware they have built their lives on tonnes of toxic carcinogenic material. Nibra village is not the only one, there are atleast 320 sites across the country that host hazardous waste which affects around 2 lakh people, directly or indirectly.
They are called orphan sites because industries and municipal agencies dumped hazardous waste at such sites and abandoned them. The environment ministry is yet to finalise even guidelines and rules to tackle hazardous waste polluted sites.
