Plastic has multiple uses and the physical and chemical properties lead to commercial success. However, the indiscriminate disposal of plastic has become a major threat to the environment. In particular, the plastic carry bags are the biggest contributors of littered waste and every year, millions of plastic bags end up in to the environment vis-a-vis soil, water bodies, water courses, etc and it takes an average of one thousand years to decompose completely. Therefore, to address the issue of scientific plastic waste management, the Plastic Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011 were notified in 2011, which included plastic waste management. The Government has notified the Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016, in suppression of the earlier Plastic Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011
Extended Producer Responsibility: Earlier, EPR was left to the discretion of the local bodies. First time, the producers (i.e persons engaged in manufacture, or import of carry bags, multi-layered packaging and sheets or like and the persons using these for packaging or wrapping their products) and brand owners have been made responsible for collecting waste generated from their products. They have to approach local bodies for formulation of plan/system for the plastic waste management within the prescribed timeframe.
The mandate of GPCB is to implement Environmental and Pollution Control Legislations, Rules and Notification so far as they pertain. The major objectives of the board revolve around Pollution Control and Protection of The Environmental quality and drawing up comprehensive programs for prevention, control or abatement of pollution from different sources.
In Gujarat, about 20500 industries have potential to generate hazardous waste which can be recycled in different areas. As per the Hazardous and Other Waste Rules – 2016, CPCB has delegated the powers to SPCBs (GPCB) to grant authorization for utilization of Hazardous and other waste under Rule 9. It is the responsibilities of a hazardous waste generating organization to divert the hazardous and other wastes to the authorized recycler.
