Non-recyclable plastic waste such as wrappers, polythenes, etc. are either burnt or end up clogging the drains and waterbodies in villages. Swachh Bharat Mission-Gramin 2.0, launched in the year 2019, focuses on managing plastic waste to make the villages clean. But, reports from the field and interaction with the communities clearly indicate lack of data on plastic disposal, lack of institutional framework, and lack of area specific disposal and recycling solutions. The present scoping paper lists the gaps and challenges in managing plastic waste and portrays success stories which can be scaled up for bringing in changes on the ground.
