Watch: East Delhi’s Ghazipur landfill continues to operate despite orders for its closure

The 33-year-old Ghazipur landfill officially exceeded its capacity in 2004. When it was formed in 1984, the height was to be limited to 20 metres, currently it stands at about 45 metres high. On 1 September, a collapse at the dumpsite led to two deaths. At the time Delhi's Lieutenant Governor General Anil Baijal’s ordered  to stop dumping solid waste at the site, despite that about 1200 trucks bearing garbage still arrive daily.
