By Correspondent

IMPHAL, July 5 - The time has come to include solid waste management in the syllabus of educational institutions, said Minister of Municipal Administration, Housing and Urban Development (MAHUD) Th Shyamkumar while addressing the inaugural function of a two-day capacity building programme on the six waste management rules, 2016, here today.

The comments and observations made by the experts on conversion of waste into wealth need to be included in the curriculum in the present context of Manipur, Shyamkumar said. He also urged all stakeholders to work for the successful implementation of the six rules in the State.

MAHUD Commissioner M Joy also stressed the need for a collective effort in executing the six waste management rules.

The National Productivity Council (NPC), an autonomous body under the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, is holding the capacity building programme on the six waste management rules notified by the Union Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change in 2016. Such workshops are being held in 20 cities of the country. The NPC is the national programme coordinator for the capacity building project.

More than 200 officials are participating in the workshop here. Seven stalls have been set up to display products made of recycled plastics, tyres and other materials.

Imphal, which generates 120 tons of solid waste daily, is the first city in the North East to hold the programme. �We are planning to organise similar workshops in Dimapur soon,� said an NPC official.

In the technical session, Swati Singh Sambyal and Sonia Henam of the Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi, made presentations on solid waste, e-waste and plastic waste management rules, 2016, in India.
