MC Commissioner KK Yadav today said all stakeholders should ensure effective management of waste in the city through a collaborative approach.

Addressing the delegates a regional workshop on Waste Management Rules, 2016, organised by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry in association with the Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, he said the government had revised and notified regulations for management of solid waste, plastic waste, e-waste, hazardous waste and biomedical waste and introduced construction and demolition waste in 2016 with an objective to accelerate the efforts for waste recycling and resource efficiency.

Yadav highlighted the best practices of the MC in the field of solid waste management. He elaborated on how the MC was processing the horticultural waste generated in gardens. He said the MC dug pits in parks to make compost from horticultural waste, which was being used in the flower beds at parks.

The MC Commissioner said the MC had taken the responsibility to make general public aware of the threat of the dumping site. School students would be taken to the site so that they could see the threat, which would be an eye-opener for them. This would make the next generation well-versed with the benefits of segregation of waste at the source level.
