The National Action Plan for Municipal Solid Waste Management

The fact is that Indian cities and towns are found littered with garbage (MSW) and represent an ugly look at many places within the city/town. In most of the towns/cities, only important locations are maintained cleanliness leaving other places chocking with uncollected waste. The collected wastes are disposed on un-attended land-fills; and it is a long-way to see that the entire waste collected by a city or town is processed and only remnants disposed in landfill. In fact, remnants classified as “inert / non-recyclable have to be converted into other useable product so to realize the vision and mission of achieving ‘Zero’ landfilling. Drawing of time-targeted action plan for management of MSW by each city and town is essential against the population and developmental growth, otherwise, with the increasing quantity of waste will lead to un-healthy environmental conditions
