In an effort to identify plastic accumulation and leakage hotspots along the Ganges river, a recent project in three north Indian cities found that roughly 10%-25% of all the plastic waste generated was littered and was not routed into recycling or appropriate waste disposal channels.

Much of the litter was multilayer plastic packaging, disposable bottles and cutlery, nylon sacks, and polythene bags.
