Rapid urbanization and rising consumption of goods make waste management in India a massive challenge. Urban India produces 62 million metric tonnes (MMT) of municipal solid waste every year, 31 MMT of which is dumped in landfills and dumpsites. Figures for recycling are abysmal; for instance, only 1.5 percent of e-waste is recycled. Mixed-waste collection patterns add to the challenge of plastic-waste management. The need of the hour is to shift the focus of waste management towards source segregation, recycle and reuse.
The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has been working on policy and implementation with regard to waste management at the national and global levels. In 2016, it published Not in My Backyard, a seminal report on the existing status of waste management in the country
The Anil Agarwal Environment Training Institute (AAETI), a CSE initiative, recognizes the need to segregate, recycle and reuse, and offers an advanced five-day training programme on ‘Integrated Waste Management’. The objective of the programme is to provide a better understanding of the key aspects of management of solid, plastic, biomedical, construction and demolition (C&D), and e-waste; technologies involved in their treatment; legislative framework; and stakeholders involved.
