The study highlighted the significant increase in the generation of municipal solid waste (MSW) in India over the past few decades and how its management had become a major problem, as poor management practices affected the health and services of cities.
To address the disposal, collection and disposal of waste in shelters and other areas of the University of Punjab (PU) campus, especially in the student center, the PU has decided to launch a three-container system under which three separate containers will be installed for organic, recyclable and general waste. Mor had also carried out a study on the characterization of solid waste management and its evaluation of the possible generation of methane. The system of having green, white and black containers on campus will allow us to efficiently segregate waste and will also help convert organic waste into compost.
