Aiming to achieve target of '100% waste segregation at source' over the next three-four years through people's participation on a massive scale, the environment ministry will come out with comprehensive revised rules on waste management in the country by July 1. It will also write to the ministry of human resource development to make 'waste management' a part of school curriculum.

Emphasizing on increased participation of people and use of new technology to make waste management more effective, Union environment minister Prakash Javadekar on Friday said interactions would be held with the HRD ministry soon for making "cleanliness drives" and "waste management" a part of school curriculum as it is easy to make children aware of the issue during their growing age.
