The Ghazipur rubbish dump in the east of the Indian capital takes up the area of the equivalent of 40 football fields and is already 65 meters high. And the mountain keeps growing.

The mountain of rubbish not only stinks terribly, it apparently also endangers health: residents say that it is sometimes very difficult for them to breathe. Environmental activists and medical professionals warn that methane gases are being released, which are also more likely to catch fire. In addition, toxic liquids seep into the soil and get into the groundwater.
