Post-COVID Zero Waste Management Strategies
June 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Mixed waste has been identified as a potentially dangerous carrier of the COVID-19 virus, right from its generation to collection and subsequent disposal. Pollution Control Boards at State and Central level in India are developing several guidelines to promote proper waste management amidst the pandemic, while leveraging existing programs like the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Can we carry this momentum forward towards achieving zero-waste in our buildings? Zero-waste facilities are well positioned to meet the guidelines for disease control while reducing landfill waste by 90%. This webinar examines practical and easy-to-implement zero waste strategies for the Post-COVID scenario in India.
