SUSTAINABILITY, ACCOUNTABILITY AND SOCIOENVIRONMENTAL CONCERNS REQUIRED IN SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT

PAPIYA DEB AND MADHAV. N. WELLING

Abstract

The growing accumulation of waste degrades the environment, reduces the land values, increases truck traffic, and ruins health, aesthetics and the necessities of life. Waste picking in India is ageold and is more a survival strategy than an occupational choice. Waste pickers are usually not aware of the forward linkages of the waste recovery process. However, they are directly affected by market price, a result of global changes. If not directly, the impact of global phenomena has been affecting the interests of waste pickers in third world cities indirectly. The survival of the urban waste workers, majority of whom are women waste pickers from marginal castes, does not represent any scaling up of their work or status as such. Despite the ecological significance of the waste workers, the mainstream society as well as the government have not felt the need to provide them with greater recognition. Based on the work of a local NGO, the paper discusses and explores accountability and environmental concerns in solid waste management as well as the scope of scaling up this business.
