SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT IN IMPHAL
The municipal solid waste (MSW) management in Imphal is still infused with challenges owing to the predominant reliance on the conventional method of waste collection, transportation and disposal. Segregation of waste is not done at source even though the municipal laws stress the importance of it. The situation at present is alarming and requires improvement in the area of infrastructural up gradation, public-private partnership (PPP), public participation, awareness campaign and implementation of existing laws. The reliance on modern method of waste recovery and recycling in the present context of waste management is negligent. This paper stresses the need of material recovery, recycling and waste-to-energy technologies in the policy making pertaining to MSW. The paper also aims to understand the importance of PPP relationship in effective management of MSW in Imphal.
