This is a public hearing focused on managing Delhi's waste woes by discussing ways to improve compliance to the new Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016 It will highlight the perspectives of the wastepickers, who, under Rule 15 of the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016 are to be included in waste management. About 10 wastepickers from the association Safai Sena will share their perspectives in brief.
The voice of wastepickers in Delhi needs to be heard. Wastepickers, who work hard, day and night, in debilitating conditions recycle and manage 20% of all the waste generated in Delhi. They save the municipalities a lot of money and resources by collecting and recycling the city’s waste, and besides play an invaluable role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating the effects of climate change.
We look forward to seeing you and devising a way forward to make Delhi clean, green and waste conscious.
