is no more a waste item (Representational image) Top News As Pune struggles with its burgeoning garbage problem the consistent increase in the amount of plastic waste is making the situation tougher In Pune the total solid waste generation is about 1500 to 1600 tonnes per day (TPD) of which 15 to 17 per cent is plastic waste that amounts to approximately 215 to 235 TPD However only 20 to 25 per cent plastic waste is recycled while the remaining 60 to 70 per cent either remains in the landfills or ends up in the city’s water bodies Experts and individuals who have been working towards addressing the garbage problem in the city feel that the society as well as civic bodies are collectively responsible for ignoring the issue Nilesh Inamdar plastic technologist and director of Patpert a city-based firm which offers plastic waste treatment solutions to various companies throughout the country said that the very advantage of using plastic — its non-degradable nature — becomes a disadvantage when it is discarded “There’s no harm in using plastic as long as the used plastic is recycled and not dumped in the environment Our experience says that some plastic such as plastic bottles are being recycled However low-value plastic like wrappers and polythene bags get mixed with garbage Ragpickers don’t pick them up as they don’t get any money This plastic chokes drains destroys river bodies and its eco-system On the other hand many animals such as cows and buffaloes end up eating plastic fall sick and sometimes die” said Inamdar Solid waste management expert Lalit Rathi said solid waste like plastic if segregated and later reused or recycled is no more a waste item The Plastic Waste Management Rules 2016 by the Ministry of Environment and Forests specifies that “the municipal authority shall be responsible for the setting up operationalisation and coordination of the waste management system and for performing associated functions… to ensure safe collection storage segregation transportation processing and disposal of plastic waste to ensure that no damage is caused to the environment during this process to ensure setting up of collection centres for plastic waste involving manufacturers to ensure its channelisation to recyclers to create awareness among all stakeholders about their responsibilities to engage agencies or groups working in waste management including waste pickers and to ensure that open burning of plastic waste is not permitted” However those working in the field claim that none of the rules are being followed Lokesh Bapat whose organisation Tellus Org has been working towards raising awareness about plastic pollution and its effects on the environment pointed out “Neither the society nor the PMC have a proper segregation system If we observe the condition of garbage bins in the city one can see that almost 60 to 65 per cent of waste is plastic including carry bags shopping bags wrappers plastic cups water bottles aluminum foils etc” Vinod Bodhankar president of Jalbiradari and joint director Sagarmitra Abhiyaan said “Plastic is a major pollutant and every family is its source Changing ‘plastic-throwing’ habit to ‘plastic collection’ habit is the key to a plastic-free smart city To achieve this we need to reduce reuse recover and recycle plastic” In the last four years under the Sagarmitra Abhiyaan 50 tonnes of domestic plastic waste was recollected and recycled by 12 lakh students from 120 schools in Pune According to Bapat the solution to the problem is to ban plastic items such as carry bags shopping bags cups dishes wrappers etc The alternatives to these items made of ceramic clay stainless steel paper jute are already available in the market“The ideal solution would be to segregate plastic from other waste at the source itself and not after it reaches garbage bins” stressed Inamdar For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by

providing 32 assists in more than 100 matches He signed a new four-year deal last year But media reports suggest he has been looking for a move – with West Ham the top suitor – since Stoke ended last
