Currently, about 90% of the waste is incinerated while the remaining non-incinerable waste is landfilled. While incineration can reduce the volume of waste by up to 90%, the demand for landfill is still high. Hence, there is a need for recycling efforts like the National Recycling Programme introduced in 2001 and trying to find useful applications for incineration ash. Going upstream, it is also important for consumers and producers to minimize the waste that is generated.
