Most construction waste is generated around urban agglomerations, and is being disposed in unsustainable ways, says Pavitra Sriprakash, Director and Chief Designer, Shilpa Architects Planners Designers. A 2014 study by the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) pointed out that construction waste is dumped into landfills, lakes, flood plains, and open areas. “Waste management needs to be done in a step-by-step process — creation, storage at site, transportation to facility, segregation, and disposal,” she says.
