Dear student

Those pollutants which cannot be broken down into simpler, harmless substances in nature, are called non-biodegradable pollutants.
DDT, plastics, polythene, bags, insecticides, pesticides, mercury, lead, arsenic, metal articles like aluminum cans, synthetic fibers, glass objects, iron products, and silver foils are non-biodegradable pollutants.
