Kerala Solid Waste Management Project
The development objective of the Kerala Solid Waste Management Project is to strengthen the institutional and service delivery systems for solid waste management in Kerala. The solid waste generated in the state on a daily basis is usually disposed of or incinerated. These practices are leading our land to serious environmental health problems. Currently, the waste management system in the state focuses on the citizen responsibility of managing biodegradable waste at source under ‘My waste, My responsibility’ approach with a focus of instilling a sense of ownership and duty among citizens. The local government’s involvement in handling of waste is restricted mostly to collection and recycling of non-biodegradable waste and collection of biodegradable waste from bulk generators.
