The main focus of ‘My waste my responsibility ‘ should be to not burden the landfills with unsegregated, non recyclable and non biodegradable waste. The mission should start from the homes of every individual . At home we must manage our own garbage. We must separate bio-degradable waste from non -biodegradable ones . Keeping in mind about the negative impacts of waste, we should clean our homes premises along with outside areas of our house.We should be responsible enough not to generate a lot of waste. We should avoid plastics ,buy food with minimal packaging and compost our kitchen waste. Childrens of each household should be educated regarding pollution of air and water so that they become responsible enough regarding home waste management.
Everyone should practice different processes like composting, recycling ,incineration. In cities ,every society should form a group of like minded people and explain waste segregation to their families and neighbors . There should be storage drums in front of every household for the the waste .

They affect human beings as well as marine bodies. So the industrialists should be responsible enough to know where they are sending their waste and take steps to ensure that they contract to collect and manage their waste. They should take their waste to legal disposal, treatment and recycling sites. The government have launched the waste duty care to ensure that the legal rules of waste management are followed by the industries in India. In the US, the companies are recognising to remove the problem of waste. They are raising funds to recycle enterprises and has adopted various strategies to eradicate waste problem.
Moreover every household should consider this mother earth as their home. They should held themselves responsible for it’s cleanliness.
