Waste Management Culture in India

Waste management has become the need of the hour in India due to excess waste generation as a result of increased consumer culture, growth in population, lack of waste management resources, etc. Waste management organizations need to create awareness regarding responsible waste segregation, disposal, and recycling. There are 2 common avenues where waste is majorly accumulated in metropolitan cities. These avenues are households and commercial sources which generate the most amount of waste.

How are Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) making an impact?

Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) focus on accumulating, managing, and recycling different types of solid waste and food waste from multiple sources. The ULBs also implement policies and protocols to ensure there is large-scale awareness created concerning the segregation and disposal of waste in a responsible manner. Their efforts extend beyond the general prerogative of waste collection and transfer to landfills. Instead, these ULBs are shifting their focus towards sustainable methods of managing and reducing waste by recycling and upcycling.


Households and Local Communities

ULBs from various states have followed the guidelines of the Central Government to introduce strict waste segregation policies by dividing waste into various categories such as food waste, dry/solid waste, plastic waste, and e-waste. Many apartments and housing societies have started using different colored bins for disposing of waste which makes it easier to manage and recycle different waste materials. Negligence towards these policies gives the respective municipalities the authority to penalize various local communities, thus, persuading them to take waste management seriously.

Businesses and Corporate Entities

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate recently introduced the EPR Program for businesses to create accountability for the usage of pre-consumer and post-consumer plastic waste. EPR stands for Extended Producers Responsibility on plastic packaging under Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016. Extended Producers’ Responsibility, refers to the brand owner’s responsibility for the management of the disposal of Pre-Consumer and Post-Consumer Plastic Waste. The main objective is to develop an effective & efficient system that takes care of the collection, segregation & transportation of waste material to the waste disposal facility.

Our logistics team engages with clients and sourcing partners to collect the accumulated pre-consumer and post-consumer waste to deliver it to our treatment facility. At our facility situated in South India, we incorporate state-of-the-art technology to compress different waste types such as plastic and paper waste into recyclable components. These waste materials undergo an upcycling process where they are melted into small pellets that can be reused for manufacturing. We utilize these pellets along with raw materials to manufacture finished goods that we repurpose for our customers. In this way, we make the waste reusable and instead of going to a landfill, the waste is recycled to form finished goods such as paper sheets, plastic packaging, etc. A detailed list of our products is mentioned here.
