“There is no such thing as ‘Away’. When we throw anything away, it must go somewhere”
Today humans generate more waste than ever before which is not only an environmental problem but also an economic loss. On an average, over 377 million urban people living in 7,935 towns and cities generate almost 62 million tonnes (MT) of municipal solid waste per annum.
Of this waste generated only 43 MT of the waste is collected, 12 MT is treated and 31 MT is dumped in landfill sites by municipal authorities within or outside the city haphazardly, creating various issues like:
- Waste collector dumping waste on road sides creating unhygienic condition
- Solid waste disposal often takes up valuable and costly land
- Your dry waste is not giving you any earning
- No facility to treat wet waste on-site
- No resource recovery from waste
Therefore, Solid Waste Management issue is the biggest challenge to the authorities of both small and large cities in developing countries. The problem is posed due to the manifold increase in generation of solid waste and the burden posed on the municipal budget. In addition to the high costs, the solid waste management is also associated with a lack of understanding over different factors that affect the entire handling system.
How can we change the way we produce and consume, so as to produce less and less waste, while using all waste as a resource? – Achieve Zero waste in a community/Township
The key to efficient waste management is to ensure proper segregation of waste at source and to ensure that the waste goes through different streams of recycling and resource recovery.
Source segregation of waste into Organic waste, Dry waste, Sanitary Waste.
