An e-Waste Management Project for Mumbai
Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) is proposing an e-waste management system. The proposal includes deploying collection boxes at different areas, a transportation system, and processing plants.
MMRDA officers will meet all the zonal heads of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) and authorized recyclers to chalk out the modalities for the project, in the coming week. BMC has seven zones.
M.R. Shah, principal advisor SWM Project Cell of the MMRDA told CXOtoday, “We want to get this plan off the ground as soon as possible. We are organizing this meeting for collective action. It will provide a common platform where stake holders can share their views on how best to tackle the problem, and to ensure everybody is in the loop. We will have a systematic approach, where different units will handle different kind of e-waste.”
MMRDA will provide recyclers with the necessary infrastructure to set up collection boxes and processing plants. However, it is not yet clear what kind of investment the project would involve and also how many collection boxes and processing plants will be setup. Shah said this would depend on suggestions given by the recyclers and the needs of each zone.
