Expert Answer:

Plastic is non-biodegradable. Hence it persists in the environment for a long time. It can make the land where it is dumped infertile. So agriculture is not possible in such places. Also clogging of drains, especially during rains, is caused by dumping of plastic in public places. These lead to outbreak of fatal diseases like leptospirosis. They can also pollute the underground water resources.
