 Inordinate delay in implementation of solid waste management rules (SWMR) for disposing of bio-degradable and non-biodegradable waste is taking a heavy toll on summer capital of Srinagar. 

Under SWMR scientific disposal of solid waste through segregation, collection and treatment and disposal in an environmentally sound manner minimises adverse impact on environment.

The local authorities are responsible for development of infrastructure for collection, storage, segregation, transportation, processing and disposal of the waste.

“Waste segregation is a matter of understanding and more about responsible behavior,” said an expert, adding in case authorities fail to implement the rules it is then “disaster in making”.  

Recently, J&K High Court directed Commissioner SMC to inform the Court about funds spent and steps taken for public awareness on solid waste management.

As per official records, state government has been only able to spent Rs 1.22 crore on the program against Rs 12.11 crore received by it.

In the city waste from fruit and vegetable markets is being unceremoniously dumped at Achan filling site. This waste is valuable source of manure generation if disposed off scientifically.
