Ever the past few years, India’s waste management sector has received tremendous attention due to the widespread awareness generated under the flagship Swachh Bharat mission.
The mission touched every citizen in some way or the other and went on to become one of the largest cleanliness drives of the world. With mere 18 per cent waste treatment capacity in 2014, India’s waste management efficiency was extremely critical and posed huge challenges towards the environment.
From 18 percent waste processing in 2014 to 70 per cent in 2021, we have come
a long way. Exemplary coordination at all levels of government and massive citizen participation in the movement resulted in an environment of Swachhta never achieved earlier in the country.
