Online waste exchange website of Andhra Pradesh Environment Management Corporation (APEMC) has been launched by the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. The website was launched on the occasion of World Environment Day. Andhra Pradesh has become India’s first state to launch waste exchange website. Through this platform, state government seeks to protect environment by covering 100% safe disposal of toxic waste, proper tracking, scrutiny as well as audit of waste.
With this platform, Andhra Pradesh government will promote the six ‘R’s namely Reduce, Refurbish, Reuse, Recycle, Redesign and Remanufacture. The platform has been set up by the government as there was a need for an appropriate system for the scientific disposal of the waste generated by the various companies in the state. Hence, APEMC will monitor the generation of waste across the State and will also take effective measures for its scientific disposal.
