Waste management to be a part of school curriculum

Aiming to achieve target of '100 per cent waste segregation at source' over the next three-four years through people's participation on a massive scale, the environment ministry will come out with comprehensive revised rules on waste management in the country by July 15. It will also write to the ministry of human resource development to make 'waste management' a part of school curriculum.

Emphasising on increased participation of people and use of new technology to make waste management more effective, Prakash Javadekar, Union Environment Minister said interactions would be held with the HRD ministry soon for making ‘cleanliness drives’ and ‘waste management’ a part of school curriculum as it is easy to make children aware of the issue during their growing age.

The minister spoke about the timeline to go for '100 per cent waste segregation' (bio-degradable and non-biodegradable) at source in next three-four years and other related issues during consultation meeting of stakeholders on 'waste management rules', organised by his ministry in association with the Confederation of India Industry (CII).
