Hanoi's solid waste problem

Although Hanoi’s solid waste rose by 9% in the 2000-2003 period, it has only two waste disposal sites of Nam Son and Lam Du. The average Hanoi resident produces .57 kg of waste per day, .9-1.5 kg lower than other major Asian centers, but economic development will continue to increase the solid waste.
