Question

How does waste accumulation affect the environment?

Solution

Accumulated waste easily becomes the breeding ground of mosquitoes, houseflies, rodents etc which can lead to the spread of many diseases like dengue, malaria, plague etc. Further, during the rainy season, wastes may flow down into the river or a small stream and pollute it with plastics and other waste materials. When this water is consumed by human beings, it can cause various diseases.
