Waste management rules are based on the core principle of sustainable development. Municipalities and concerned authorities are mandated to take care that any practices they follow do not disrupt the sustainability factor. However, as more and more areas are being developed and urbanised, the country is facing a massive waste management challenge. Solid waste management is a basic service that should be provided by municipalities. The key to efficient waste management is by segregating waste at the source so that it can be treated accordingly i.e recycled, reused and recovered.
Benefits of sustainable waste management
The entire process involves basic steps like collecting, sorting, treating, recycling and if possible, providing a source of energy and resources, the latter being a potential economic benefit if utilised effectively. Besides that, in a country like India which has a major livelihood crunch for an ever-growing population, following a proper waste management process creates many jobs. Not to mention the overall jump in the quality of life index that one sees when proper hygiene is ensured and not impaired by health risks as a result of illegal dumping and inadequate garbage collection. Where sustainability angle makes a major difference is, in the environmental impact of it all. Following a sustainable waste management process improves the air and water quality and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. When we reduce the food waste, we also reduce the heavy environmental cost of producing more.
