Our country faces multiple challenges in the management and disposal of this gigantic volume of waste. From the non-segregation of waste by citizens to the country’s flawed waste disposal systems that result in the escape of waste, India has a long way to go with respect to efficient and safe waste management. Moreover, this industry supports a huge informal sector of door-to-door rag pickers who earn their daily bread through a waste collection fee and sale of recyclables.
Waste disposal and management is very essential to ensure sustainability. Production, consumption and disposal of goods needs to be done in such a manner that efficiently all the work is accomplished as well as the technology used becomes a solution and not a burden. Indic solutions are the one which was promoted by Poonam Kasturi in 2006 for people and can easily be adopted.
