Waste pile up

Population growth and a construction boom in Kabul, Afghanistan, have resulted in a daily generation of 3,000 tonnes of solid waste and the municipality cannot keep up with the growth. At least 300 tonnes of rubbish are building up every day, causing serious health and environmental concerns. Nisar Ahmad Habibi Ghori, Director of Waste Management in Kabul, commented: “We need more and better resources to keep the city somehow clean.”
