      Average Compositon of Solid Waste reaching the Dumping Grounds in Mumbai:
       
      55%    Wet organic material (primarily kitchen and fruit waste) - all biodegradable
      15%    Dry organic material e.g. grass -- all biodegradable
      20%    Recyclable material (primarily plastic 10%, and paper 7%)
      10%    Inert material (primarily sand and silt)
      -----
      100%
       
      Variation could be +/- 7% i.e. inert could go up to 17%.
       
      Total waste generated seems to be 8000 tons / day.
       
      All the data above is to be taken as generally indicative for thinking purposes, rather than accurate for actual planning purposes.
