The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India has notified the Hazardous and Other Waste (Management and Transboundary) Rules, 2016. As per the rules, hazardous waste means any waste which by reason of characteristics such as physical, chemical, biological, reactive, toxic, flammable, explosive or corrosive, causes danger or is likely to cause danger to health or environment. The hazardous waste generator shall follow the steps namely prevention, minimization, reuse, recycling, recovery, utilization including co-processing and safe disposal of hazardous waste. SPCB shall grant authorization for handling the hazardous wastes.
TNPCB has identified 3,545 units generating hazardous wastes and issued authorization under the rules. In Tamil Nadu about 6.91 lakhs tons of hazardous waste is annually generated in which 2.97 lakhs tones is landfillable, 3.42 lakhs tones is recyclable and 0.52 lakhs tones is incinerable. The Board is taking effective steps in handling and management of hazardous wastes, its treatment and disposal in an environmentally safe manner. One common hazardous waste Treatment Storage and Disposal Facility (TSDF) has been established at SIPCOT Industrial Estate, Gummidipoondi and another TSDF at Unduorumikidakulam village in Virudhunagar district is in operation.
TNPCB has taken pioneering efforts to utilize the hazardous waste generated from Common Effluent Treatment Plants (CETPs) of textile processing units as fuel/raw material for co-processing in the cement factories. So far, about 50,000 Tonnes of ETP sludge have been disposed to various Cement industries for co-processing. Similar trails are being taken-up for using hazardous waste generated from tannery CETPs in co-processing in the cement factories. A common facility for pre-processing of hazardous waste has been established in Ranipet. The facility pre-processes the hazardous waste so as to use the same for co-incineration in cement kiln.

The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India has notified the Solid Waste Management Rules, 2016. As per the rules, solid waste means solid or semi solid domestic waste, sanitary waste, commercial waste, institutional waste, catering and market waste and other non-residential wastes, street sweepings, silt removed or collected from surface drains, horticulture waste, agriculture and dairy waste, treated bio-medical waste excluding industrial waste, bio-medical waste and e-waste, battery waste, radio-active waste generated in the area under the local authorities. As per the rules, the local bodies are responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of solid wastes. The Board is the monitoring authority under the said rules and is responsible for granting authorization to local bodies for processing and disposal of solid waste.
In Tamil Nadu there are 12 Corporations, 124 Municipalities and 528 Town Panchayats. In total the solid waste generation is 14,600 Tonnes per day. The Greater Chennai Corporation generates 5000 TPD, 11 Corporation and all Municipalities generates about 7600 TPD and all the town panchayat generates 2000 TPD. The Board is advocating the concept of waste segregation at source, waste reduction, recycle and reuse to avoid any environmental issues during handling.
The Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Government of India has notified the Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016. As per the rules, plastic waste means any plastic discarded after use or after its intended use is over. The local body shall be responsible for the development and setting up of infrastructure for segregation, collection, storage, transportation, processing and disposal of the plastic waste.
As per the rules, carry bag made of virgin or recycled plastic, shall not be less than 50 micron in thickness. The persons engaged in manufacture or import of carry bags or multilayered packaging or plastic sheets or like shall obtain registration certificate from the State Pollution Control Board. The role of State Pollution Control Board is to enforce the provisions of these rules relating to registration, for the manufacture of plastic products and multilayered packaging and disposal of plastic wastes.
TNPCB is taking many initiaties to deal with the plastic wastes. Many awareness programmes were conducted by TNPCB to the general public and the Government bodies on the ill effects of plastics and the need to use alternatives to the "use and throw plastic" items. The Board is conducting plastic waste awareness programme in all districts periodically and meetings with local bodies, Plastic Manufacturer's Association to establish plastic waste collection centres. Chennai Corporation, Madurai Corporation and Dindigul municipalities have established plastic waste collection centres with shredders and these wastes are used for making plastic roads in Corporation maintained roads and local body roads. TNPCB encourages the units that come up with proposal to establish energy oriented units converting plastic waste to oils. The plastic waste collected are being utilised in cement kilns for co-processing, as energy resource.
