Plastic waste management takes center stage in Jagtial
Across the country, districts are working out modalities for plastic waste collection systems that would curb use of single use plastics (SUP) and at the same time reduce, reuse and recycle plastic items – to help cut down the amount of waste we send to landfills. Take the example of the District Collector (DC) of Jagtial in Telangana who offered the public one kilogram of rice for 1 kilogram of plastic waste.
Construction of Community Sanitary Complexes (CSCs) as a part of the ongoing Samudayik Shauchalaya Abhiyan (SSA) is making headway across the country as 17 districts have achieved 100 per cent CSC coverage (at least one geo-tagged CSC in every village).
To provide insights into the various elements of ODF Plus, how it can be measured and the implementation process, the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti organised a webinar for State and District officials from across the country.
