Abstract: It is estimated that out of the 9,600 tonnes of municipal solid waste (MSW) generated by Delhi only 78% of the waste is collected, 9% is treated by composting, and the remaining gets dumped in one of the three (Okhla, Ghazipur, Bhalswa) open landfill sites located at the outskirts of Delhi. The present article stems out of the assessment of the practice of solid waste management at Okhla Landfill site based on the field study, including survey analysis and primary data collection and investigation. The article looks into the legislative framework and judicial interventions to modernise and organise the waste disposal system on scientific lines. The outcomes of the present study demonstrate that decentralisation, capacity building, and access to the sharing of waste management knowledge, holds the crucial driver for sustainable waste management.
