CPCB’s App to Keep Track of COVID-19 Waste

The Central Pollution Control Board is using a waste tracking software to measure the amount of COVID-19 waste being generated by each state and Union territory. Every municipal corporation and waste generator have to use the app to log in the amount of COVID-19 waste being generated, collected and disposed of every day. In a report prepared for the Supreme Court-mandated EPCA, which has been tracking waste management during COVID, CPCB said in August 2020, all states and Union territories had generated an average of 169 tonnes per day, while the total count across the country stood at 5238 tonnes. In Delhi, the COVID-19 waste had come down to 296 tonnes in August compared to 390 tonnes in July.
