In India, Plastic waste rising rapidly day by day due to increasing the living standards of human beings by leaps & bounds and due to increasing population.The plastic waste management is not developing in India however, India having Plastic Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 2011. The collection, transportation and process of plastic waste management are unscientific and chaotic. Uncontrolled dumping of wastes on outskirts of towns and cities has created abundantlandfills, which are not only impossible to reclaim because of the haphazard manner of dumping, but also have serious environmental implications in terms of ground water pollution and contribution to global warming. Burning of plastic waste leads to air pollution, which is equivalent to vehicular emissions at times.In the absence of plastic waste segregation practices, recycling has remained to be an informalsector working on outdated technology, but nevertheless flourishing owing to waste material availability and market demand of cheaper recycled products. Plastic recycling have been especially growing due to continuously increasing consumption levels of both the commodities. In this paper, I developa model of plastic waste management under the rule and regulation which has been given by CPCB, Ministry of Environment and etc. in India to maintain the balance of the ecosystem by proper managing the plastic wastes.
