Online Release of New Report: Domestic Hazardous Waste Management in India

Rapid urbanisation and the growth of middle class lifestyles have led to a proliferation of waste -- including waste that carries toxic properties. Management of this deadly waste stream remains hamstrung due to lack of source segregation, inefficient collection mechanism, improper disposal and limited institutional capacity of city governments.

Domestic hazardous waste is typically generated in lesser quantities than other components of municipal solid waste, but its potential risks to the environment and human health are disproportionate to its quantum. It becomes hazardous when given a chance to react with other materials in common dumpsites; if not segregated properly, it can significantly affect the quality of recycled products.

It is, therefore, imperative to understand this waste stream separately and create an efficient system to sustainably manage it.

Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) invites you to a webinar and public release of its latest report on ‘Domestic Hazardous Waste - An approach towards scientific collection, treatment and disposal in India’, and to discuss the findings that have emerged from the study.

NOTE: This is a free webinar for waste management practitioners, officials from Central and state urban departments and municipalities, urban and town planners, academicians, students, NGO representatives, CBOs, waste-picker’s associations and others. All those who register will receive an automatic confirmation. Please register yourselves at the earliest and reach out to us in case of any queries.
