7.50 lakh tonnes garbage dumped in nullahs every year

Pune's sewage management system remains abysmal, with nearly 7.50 lakh tonnes of garbage dumped in nullahs every year, leading to flooding during the monsoon. Almost two-thirds of residential areas are not connected to drainage lines. The PMC is planning to double the capacity of the garbage processing plant to reduce waste.
