Dabur became first “Plastic waste neutral company” in India
One of the leading multinational consumer goods company in India, Dabur became a 100 per cent “Plastic waste neutral company” on 14th Feb. The FMCG company claims to be the first in India to do this.
During the financial year 2021-2022, the company recycled and processed approximately 27000 MT of post-consumer plastic waste under its “Plastic Waste Management” initiative. The initiative was started in compliance with the guidelines of the “Solid Waste Management” rules (2016) by the Indian government. From across the country, the company aimed to collect, process, and recycle over 22000 MT of post-consumer plastic waste. Through rag pickers in 150 cities across India, Dabur has collected over 54000 MT of plastic waste from end-users to date.
A lot of effort has been made in India to build an efficient solid waste management system. The Union Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change issued solid Waste Management Rules (SWM) in 2016. Many states have taken initiatives under these rules.
On the other hand, the “Harithamitram” Mobile app will be available in Ernakulam, Kerela next month to enable local authorities to monitor solid waste management, as per the reports. Using the application, registered users can learn about progress in waste management and defects. The app was developed by the Haritha Keralam Mission and Suchitwa Mission. Minister for Local-Self Governments M.V. Govindan has said that the activities under the Kerala Solid Waste Management Project will be stepped up to find a lasting solution to the waste management and sanitation issues in the cities.
The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) plans to establish 30 secondary collection and transfer points (SCandTP) to improve waste management. Contrary to the old big transfer stations, the new SCandTPs will take up just 100 square meters of space. It is expected that the new SCandTPs will reduce the load on the existing transfer stations and speed up the disposal process.
Waste disposal regulations emphasize the separation of wet (biodegradable) and dry (recyclable) waste at the source. Blue and green bins are universally used for this purpose. In addition to this basic segregation, the MBMC (Mira Bhayandar Municipal Corporation) intends to introduce a “Red Bin” to collect hazardous waste.
India is generating 62 million tonnes of solid waste every year. According to some reports it is at risk of drowning in its waste. These kinds of collective efforts from industry and regulators should be encouraged more.
