Toxic trash spread in Savar

Some 300 industries around a 20 sq km near the Dhaka Export Processing Zone (DEPZ) in Savar are dumping toxic chemicals. To see the image http://www.thedailystar.net/2006/05/20/d6052001044p.htm . Its horrendous.

These toxic chemicals are running in farming lands where vital crops are being destroyed also causing environmental imbalance. The reason for this is because of lack of sewage and draining facilities. Not only that there are no recycling plant built-in with the industries to treat these toxic wastes.
