With landfills ranked third in India in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and mounting public pressure, the Indian government amended its solid waste management policy after 16 years. India is plagued by a massive garbage problem. According to projections, India will require a territory the size of Singapore to dump its rubbish by 2030. India is in a race against time to create appropriate urban waste management techniques as its urban population grows. This article provides an institutional framework for addressing this serious environmental and public health issue and bringing about systemic change in the industry and effective alternative sources to recycle and reuse the generated non-biodegradable wastes. There are also other startups working unnoticed to lessen the buildup of created waste, which, with adequate public recognition, can reduce the waste piled up.

Keywords : Solid Waste Management, Start-ups for SWM, Alternatives for Non-Biodegradable Waste.
