The Municipal Solid Waste Management and Handling Rules, 2000 mandate integrated municipal solid waste management system which focuses on waste reduction and recycling at source, waste collection at the doorstep of the generators in segregated manner, waste collection and transportation in prescribed types of bins – vehicles processing and disposal of processing rejects and non-recyclable material in sanitary landfills. Municipal waste management, in most cities at present, leaves a huge gap between the present status and standard set in the MSW rules. The compliance of the rules needs both sensitization and resources which most urban local bodes do not have. This calls for public private partnership for meeting the technology and resources requirement and also forging an efficiency, economy and accountability in services delivery.
Sustainable waste management can be achieved through decentralized waste management strategy. Contracting out centralized collection, transportation processing and disposal of waste as per traditional approach disincentives waste reduction at source and also eliminates urban poor from getting employment benefits in the process. Decentralized management is based on micro planning of small areas of the city (or units) in which planning for integrated waste management is carried out and the work done is quantified with cost. The advantage of such system is that waste can be managed as far as possible within smaller areas through recycling and processing of biodegradable waste. Only processing rejects or wastes that cannot be recycled or is hazards in nature need to be transported to the centralized processing facility.
With a view to involve Micro Enterprises in waste management services, the activities which are not cost intensive and do not involve the huge fixed assets have to be considered. The objective of the involvement of Micro Enterprises is to provide employment to urban poor such as waste pickers, unemployed youth, self-help groups etc. in an organized manner. These groups have manpower but lack huge financial and managerial resources. It is impossible for them to compete with big contractors/service providers in an open competition.
