A trend of significant increase in solid waste generation has been seen worldwide. This has been found due to over population growth rate, industrialization, urbanization and economic growth. Being one of the fastest growing countries is witnessing Consumerism at a healthy speed emulating the pace of the economy growth and generating Solid with economic development. Solid Waste can be considered as generation of undesirable substances which is left after they are used once. It cannot be re-used directly by the society for its welfare because some of them may be hazardous for human health. Industrial development has shown a progressive trend in the world. Presently not only the air but earth itself becomes more and more polluted especially with generation of generation of non-biodegradable substances (solid waste). Since the last five decades due to urbanization, industrialization and change in the habits as well attitude to life has resulted uncontrolled exploitation of different kinds of natural resources and finally generation of large amount of solid waste having more complexity, some of them cannot be degraded by micro-organisms. Besides this some of them may cause injurious health effect on human beings. An urban society rejects and generates solid material regularly which leads to considerable increase in the volume of waste generated from several sources such as domestic wastes, commercial wastes, institutional wastes and industrial wastes.
Generally, Solid waste is disposed off in low-lying areas without taking any precautions or operational controls, which leads to excessive land filling/land usage and cannot be a permanent solution ever. Therefore Solid waste management is one of the major environmental problems of our country. Earth Initiative Foundation collaborates with the organizations managing waste as a resource, promoting sustainable, environmentally sound and cost-effective practices with an integrated system of waste collection through innovative technology, recycling, and manufacturing of sustainable products made out of the recycled waste material.
