Rohit Tandon | Dr Aparna Goyal
Abstract: Today in India, the most talented and skilled population exist but on the other hand there are also large number of peoples those are uneducated. the educated peoples are also doing same to the environment as the uneducated peoples. This can be said in the context that the educated peoples are also spoiling the plastic waste in the open environment as the uneducated peoples do. The plastic waste in the environment is causing a big harm to the environment. This harm is more than that we can think. This plastic waste that is spoiled openly in the environment can be a great reason for the most of the diseases. The peoples that are educated are also not taking care of it. The gathering in danger from the informal transfer of strong waste incorporate the populace in territories where there is no appropriate waste transfer technique, particularly the pre-school youngsters, squander specialists, and laborers in offices spoiling plastic material. Other high-hazard bunch incorporate populace living near a waste dump and those, whose water supply has turned out to be defiled either because of waste dumping or spillage from landfill destinations. Uncollected strong waste additionally expands danger of damage, and contamination. in the previous 3-decades, plastic materials have been progressively utilized as a part of sustenance attire, protect, transportation, development, therapeutic, and amusement businesses. Plastics are invaluable as they are solid, light-weighted, and strong. In any case, they are disadvantageous as they are impervious to biodegradation, prompting contamination, destructive to the regular habitat. The fruitful creation and advertising of biodegradable plastics will help ease the issue of natural contamination. In the previous 10 years, a few biodegradable plastics have been brought into the market. In any case, none of them is effectively biodegradable in landfills. Therefore, none of the items has increased across the board utilize (Anonymous 1999). Subsequently, there is a pressing need to create effective microorganisms and their items to tackle this worldwide issue. Specifically, natural local waste represents a genuine risk, since they age, making conditions positive to the survival and development of microbial pathogens. Coordinate treatment of strong waste can bring about different sorts of irresistible and endless sicknesses with the waste specialists and the cloth pickers being the most helpless. Introduction to unsafe waste can influence human wellbeing, youngsters being more defenseless against these contaminations. Truth be told, guide introduction can prompt ailments through substance presentation as the arrival of compound waste into the earth prompts synthetic harming. Many investigations have been done in different parts of the world to set up an association amongst wellbeing and unsafe waste. So, in this study I have studied about the factors responsible for consumer behaviour towards disposal of goods. in this study I have studied about how the different level of peoples behave towards the same waste products. this study helps me to understand that what steps can be taken to save the environment from the hazardous plastic waste. In this study I have compared the different peoples of different ages, location, education, social class that what they do to the same product after using it. Different techniques for the recycling of the plastic waste is now introduced by the govt. but the population of India not taking the techniques seriously that from which harm these techniques can save us. Like recently the govt. has launched the technique of the different colour disposal bins. In which we can use the blue dustbin for the recyclable waste and the green bin for the other waste. In this technique the MCD workers collect the recyclable waste from the blue bin and get it to the recycling plant. But most of the peoples still do not know about those bins like in which bins they have to put the recyclable waste and where they have to put the other waste. so, in this research I have studied about the different methods of recycling the plastic waste that can save the environment and also us from the harmful effect of these plastic waste.
