Bhalswa is the largest landfill in Delhi and gets about 2,700 tonnes of garbage per day.

New Delhi:  Adding to the pollution crisis in the national capital is a fire raging in Bhalswa landfill in north Delhi that began in the early hours today.

Bhalswa, a 40-acre wide landfill, is the largest in Delhi and gets about 2,700 tonnes of garbage per day.

Deadly methane gas is produced from the decomposing waste in the 60-metre high mountain of garbage, located near Azadpur Mandi. Toxic smoke has spread all over the area, reducing visibility.

In 2006, authorities had said the landfill has reached its limit, but till today garbage is being dumped here.
