The national association of recycling industries Material Recycling Association of India (MRAI), with over 1200+ members, has called on the Government for early implementation of National Recycling Policy for furthering the Nation Building objectives. Leveraging the recycling possibilities could yield manifold benefits to the economy, including faster actualization of its $5 trillion target and generating millions jobs, it added while addressing media during a press meet held on the eve of its 7th International Material Recycling Conference in Delhi.

Mr. Sanjay Mehta, President, MRAI says, “Recycling has the innate capacity to play a wholesome role of a catalyst to nation building if it is aligned to the announced national priorities of the Government like Swachh Bharat (Clean India Mission), Make in India, Development of Smart Cities and Sagarmala. 

“Incorporating the salient aspects of a national recycling policy will lead to a zero waste policy and regulate illegal dumping of end of life products, which in turn will led to cleaner surroundings especially around residential area — all contributing to making ‘Clean India’ campaign more successful”.

Mr. Amar Singh, Secretary General MRAI added, "An effective Recycling policy and its active implementation would adequately address the challenges in the recycling value chain like Generation, Collection, Processing, Usage and Disposal. In today’s scenario, Recycling is the only viable resource available to the country by way of which India can achieve Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), achieving inclusive growths socially, economically and environmentally”.

After the overwhelming success of six International Indian conferences, MRAI is organising 7th INTERNATIONAL INDIAN MATERIAL RECYCLING CONFERENCE on 8th & 9th February 2020, at Hotel Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon, Delhi NCR. This conference is sponsored by Century Metal Recycling, Laxcon Steels, GDB International, Gemini Corporation NV and Bindal Group.
