Best Practices on Solid Waste Management for Litter Free, Dump free, Dustbin free cities in align with “Swachh Bharat Mission” 23 – 25 January, 2017

Introduction:

Municipal Waste management is one of the major global concerns of today. Waste generation is on a steep rise with new waste streams emerging that are complex and difficult to handle. Poor collection and indiscriminate disposal of untreated waste have led to contamination and degradation of the natural resources and ecosystems and have posed risks to human health. Costs of remediation and restoration of natural resources are much higher than the investments on sound management of wastes. One and half decade after the notification of the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Rules 2000, most Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) are today far from achieving compliance with the Rules. Today, mere compliance with MSW rules is however not sufficient. Managing wastes should no longer be limited to traditional ’end-of-pipe’ waste management that focuses only on collection, treatment and disposal. For sustainability and effectiveness, waste prevention, avoidance or reduction is the key. It is important that links between ’waste management’ and wider ambit of ’resource management’ are understood and practiced. The concept of Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) needs to be expanded to Integrated Waste to Resource Management (IWRM). To address the above stated challenges and achieve compliance to MSW 2000 rules, urban areas require capacity building support to implement ISWM programmes and projects. About 0.1 million plus towns and cities generate 42 million tonnes at present with per capita generation of waste varying from 200 gm to 600 gm per capita / day. It is estimated that per capita waste generation is increasing by 1.3%. This will result in annual increase of waste generation to around 5%. Uncontrolled dumping of wastes on the outskirts of towns and cities continues to be the norm, which has serious implications both for public health as well as environmental pollution, especially groundwater contamination. There are very few successful examples in the area of scientific treatment, disposal and energy generation from waste. The training programme on “Best Practices on Solid Waste Management for Litter free, Dump free, Dustbin free cities in align with “Swachh Bharat Mission” is designed to share the best practices of MSW case studies in urban sector. The programme is structured to offer both conceptual and practical skills, providing the latest knowledge on key aspects of ISWM in promoting and strengthening the service delivery in compliance with MSW 2000 rules.
