Delhi is no stranger to mounds of plastic waste. In fact, the city is so loaded with plastic waste that the SDMC has had to come up with 40 new waste management centers. These will help with the ever increasing plastic waste in the national capital.

A dire need of the hour, it is nothing short of a public service what the SDMC has undertaken. Though a bit late, the efforts of the SDMC will not be in vain. The immense plastic waste that is generated often goes unprocessed and is dumped along with regular, biodegradable waste. Once this happens, the plastic wreaks havoc on the soil.

Where have they come up?

As of now, the SDMC has set up a total of 40 such plants at 10 different locations across 4 areas under its wing. These include areas such as Defence Colony and Nehru Place markets, T-market Sriniwaspuri, Sarai Kale Khan bus depot, Nizamuddin Dargah, Daryaganj, Najafgarh zone office and Supermarket Janakpuri.

Most of these are high traffic areas and especially market zones, which is where a chunk of Delhi's plastic waste comes from. Now that there are plastic waste management centres, one can expect less non-biodegradable plastic in the markets.

What do the plastic waste centres do?

With the help of the new plastic management areas, you can expect a cleaner Delhi that is devoid of plastic. At the plastic waste management centres that have been set up by SDMC, the waste will undergo proper treatment in all respects. The machines are state of the art and are expected to function for a long period of time, without any issues, ensuring elimination of environmental risks.

They have the capacity to completely process the plastic waste and make it safe for reuse. This should, in turn, increase the amount of plastic that becomes recyclable.

Soon, the plan is to construct more such plants. At this rate, the SDMC also plans to have door-to-door pick up of plastic trash so that it can be processed in the right manner.
