Recycling of Wastes in MSME Sector
Waste management used to be considered a public good, where municipal authorities provided this service. However municipal authorities alone cannot deal with the challenge of managing waste in today’s world, owing to rapid rise in solid waste creation.
Interestingly, the private sector can play a huge role in providing the service economically and efficiently and the role of this sector is well accepted in policy circles across the world. There are multiple benefits arising from increased private sector participation. Apart from the possibility of fast technology adoption, innovation potential in waste management technology and processes and new ways of recycling, Government of India will contribute by creating thousands of new jobs in the recycling and waste management industry and help create cleaner cities and a give boost to a greener economy.
The micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) have immense business opportunities in this sector, because out of the total 4 billion tonnes of waste produced worldwide, just one billion is currently being recovered and only part of them recycled.
