A2Z of Solid Waste Management
Food For Thought:
As per latest statistics, 62 Million tonnes of waste is generated in India per annum.
5.2 Million Tonnes is plastic waste.
0.17 Million Tonnes is bio-medical waste.
7.90 Million Tonnes Hazardous waste generation.
15 lakh Tonnes of e-waste.
Only 75-80 percent Municipal Waste is collected and 22.28 percent is processed and treated.
It is time we take the leap forward and educate ourselves and our neighborhood about the rules pertaining to Solid Waste Management (#SWM). I will be writing a step by step guide on ‘Solid Waste Management’, which will be easy to understand by all.
“Recycle and Reuse wherever possible
“Generate Organic Manure from Bio-degradable waste”.
