National Green Tribunal Order on Sanitary Napkin Incinerator – Glolifecare fills Burning Need!

The National Green Tribunal issued guiding instructions to Tamil Nadu Government to take
steps to protect the environment from dangerous bio wastes in the form of improper disposal of used sanitary napkins that are commonly used by girls and women.

This was in response to a petition from Mr.Vijayakumar of Royapettah before the NGT.

The gist of the petition was that ‘many companies were manufacturing sanitary napkins for useby children, girls and women. These napkins were widely used. However there was no
organized facility for Safe and hygienic disposal of the used sanitary napkins. Hence they are disposed haphazardly, affecting nearby areas, waterbodies and the entire surrounding environment with dangerous untreated biochemical pollutants.

This endangers the Lives of over 15 lakh Sanitation workers who handle waste management at
huge personal health risk.

Safe disposal of used Sanitary Napkins is a must’

On completing the Hearing, Members of the National Green Tribunal ( South) in Chennai,
Honorable Judge Chockalingam and Mr.P.S.Rao ( Technological Expert) , issued the following

Toilets in All Educational Institutions, Hospitals, Bus and Rail Transport Points ( major stops and stations) and public places, must be fitted with Modern, Efficient Incinerators for disposing of used sanitary napkins. This is to be carried out by the Health Department, local bodies like Corporation, Municipalities, Water and Sewerage Board and Chennai Corporation, to ensure compliance.

Pollution due to extremely harmful bio-waste from used sanitary napkins must be fully prevented. Right manufacturing companies must be identified for this purpose’.
