    Use this garbage to fill up sea shore and extend Sri Lanka's land area and sell that land to China, India, Maldives etc.

    Simple solution, collect the bio waste separately and turn into compost and put the rest (which are mostly recyclable) in an open space and let loos the kudu karayas. They will separate, clean and make sure the material goes to the suitable recycling centers.
