Poor waste disposal by MCD raises stink.
According to CPCB's 39th inspection report, poor waste management by MCD is damaging the environment.
The report added that the civic agency's slackness and faulty design of the landfill sites may pollute groundwater. Often, garbage flows into the Yamuna, polluting it.
The report pointed at the lack of coordination among MCD staff responsible for waste disposal.
Garbage spills out of dustbins because loader operators are not trained.
It added that all the landfill sites have exceeded capacity and new sites were urgently needed.
The sites should be redesigned to keep out stray animals, birds and rag pickers. Their heights may be raised and they should be covered, the report said.
