It was considered a race against time to stop waste dumping, at the Pratap Vihar landfill site by January 15, due to it being an order given by the NGT panel on solid waste management.

On December 24 2018, the Ghaziabad Municipal Corporation (GMC) issued an emergency board meeting where the mayor, 100 councilors and the municipal commissioner were present at the meeting, where they decide to set up a waste collection centre for every 5-10 wards.

They also plan to invoke laws on civic waste disposal for huge waste generators, along with being on the lookout for low-lying area’s for a clean sanitary site within municipal limits, where waste is isolated from the environment until it’s safe.
