Pollution(Waste management)

  • Akanksha Singh, Kamalpreet Kaur, Anisha Goswami
  • With the increase in population, pollution caused by garbage has become a big problem in India. There are not enough dustbins in public places and even when there are, people sometimes don't use them. A lot of people just throw plastics, wrappers, bottles etc on roads and in public places. People are not aware of its harmful effects. This garbage and other such waste is also the cause of various diseases. The rate at which population is increasing waste production from all over the world is expected to be approximately 27 billion tonnes per year by 2050, one-third of which will come from Asia, with major contributions from China and India. Apart from governmental measures and other initiatives by NGOs public awareness and participation is key for proper management of waste. Ensuring proper segregation of waste at source is also important. Waste generated on daily basis from public places like malls, parks, etc also needs to be managed effectively. A lot of times people don't even know the difference between the green and blue bin as they are unable to differentiate bio from non-biodegradable waste and dispose of garbage in the wrong bin which increases the work for recycling plants. The public must be made aware of waste management issues to make them understand the consequences of improper management of waste and how it may ultimately pose a serious threat to their lives and well-being.

  • People who don't dispose of the garbage properly and those who aren't aware of the harmful effects of the pollution caused by garbage. This includes people of age group 13-50.
