PLASTIC WASTE POLLUTION AND MANAGEMENT - AN OVERVIEW

Utpal Goswami and H.P. Sarma

Abstract

Now-a-days plastics and polymers have become a part of our daily life. Because of their non-breakable, corrosion free nature, light weight and easy handling characteristics, plastics have become very useful to mankind. But its non-biodegradable nature has made the plastic wastes a matter of concern to the environmentalists. This paper describes the prevailing hazards of plastic wastes and some of the possible management and recycling strategies. With the optimum utilization of plastic materials and by the help of adoptable recycling technology, the environmental menace arising out of plastic wastes can be minimized.
