Urban India (about 377 million people) generates 62 million tonnes of municipal solid waste each year, of this about 43 million tonnes (70%) is collected and 11.9 million tonnes (20%) is treated. About 31 million tonnes (50%) is dumped in landfill sites.
With changing consumption patterns and rapid economic growth it is estimated that urban municipal solid waste generation will increase to 165 million tonnes in 2030.
62 million tonnes annually averages out to 450 grams of waste per person per day. However, there is a lot of variability in per capita waste generation in India, daily household municipal solid waste (MSW) generation ranges from 170 grams per person in small towns to 620 grams per person in large cities.
A 2007 study of Indian metro cities (cities with a population of over 1 million inhabitants) estimates MSW composition (by weight) to be 41% organic or biodegradable, 40% inert, 6% paper, 4% plastic, 4% textiles, 2% glass, 2% metals and 1% leather.
According to a 2014 India Planning Commission MSW study 51% of MSW is organic or biodegradable, 32% is inert or non-organic and 17% is recyclable waste.
