In addition to this, rapid urbanization and population explosion cause the problem more acute than ever before. Huge tonnes of solid waste are generated in urban areas specially in the industrial and metropolitan city. In rural areas also it is increasing day by day. A grim situation is ahead in near future due to disposal of solid waste and environmental pollution. This is going to affect the quality of life in several ways if proper measures are not taken.
