For developing countries, industrialization was must and still this activity very much demands to build self reliant and in uplifting nation’s economy. However, industrialization on the other hand has also caused serious problems relating to environmental pollution.
Therefore, wastes seem to be a by-product of growth. The country like India cans ill afford to lose them as sheer waste.

materials for various beneficial uses. The problems relating to disposal of industrial solid waste are associated with lack of infrastructural facilities and negligence of industries to take proper safeguards.
