While India continues to be besieged by waste, a new book on waste management looks at how a minimal waste society can be created.

When it comes to managing huge piles of waste, Indian metros have a monumental task in hand. As per 2011 figures, Delhi is the biggest waste generator with 6800 tonnes of waste being produced daily.
