CHALLENGES IN COLLECTION & SEGREGATION OF PLASTICS WASTE

Only 60% of this waste is recycled, according to reports on India's situation. However, segregation and re-aggregation of plastic waste streams such as packaging waste, especially laminated plastic, is a big difficulty.One of the effects of excessive plastic consumption is the development of plastic garbage, particularly through single-use products. According to the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB), Indian cities created 9.47 million tonnes of plastic garbage in 2017.

This was due to the fact that around 70% of plastic packaging products are transformed to waste in a short period of time (CPCB 2018, MoHUA2019). Plastic trash creation is anticipated to rise to 31.4 million tonnes by 2031 and 55 million tonnes by 2041 (Statista 2019), indicating a pressing need to solve the growing plastic waste problem in our country.

Plastics were created as a blessing, but single-use plastics or those that are too expensive to collect and recycle, along with a lack of knowledge and poor solid waste management in cities, have resulted in littering and eventually reaching the ocean from land-based sources. There are still difficulties in recycling collected plastics, as well as environmental problems linked with improperly managed plastics.
