Welcome to Industrial Waste Management Association

The Industrial Waste Management Association was formed on the directive of Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board to establish facilities for the safe and scientific disposal of the solid wastes from industries as per the Hazardous Waste (Management and Handling) Rules and Environment Protection Act, 1986.

IWMA was registered in 2002 and has facilitated the establishment and operation of a Common Hazardous Waste Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facility through a Service Provider for industries in Tamil Nadu.

Development of the Association

Environmental Protection Act 1986 sets the onus of identifying the sites for Common Hazardous Waste Treatment Storage and Disposal Facility (CHWTSDF) to the State Governments. In line with directive from the Honourable Supreme Court, the Government of Tamil Nadu, through TNPCB, formed a core group of representatives from the industries in Tamil Nadu to coordinate the establishment of CHWTSDF in 1999. At the instance of TNPCB, an Association, named Industrial Waste Management Association (IWMA) was registered in 2002 with strength of 35 members.

From 2002 to 2007, the Association was coordinating the Assessment and Clearance of various sites along with the Government of Tamil Nadu. During this period, IWMA was functioning from the premises of Orchid Chemicals in Cathedral Road. An Executive Committee of 9 members met on a monthly basis to build the framework of the Association. IWMA engaged Ramky group (later Tamil Nadu Waste Management Limited, TNWML), as its service provider to establish and operate its first landfill facility in Tamil Nadu.

With the establishment of CHWTSDF in Gummidipoondi SIPCOT in ~27 acres and increase in membership to more than 100, the Association felt the need for an organized office. With prime focus on establishing and operating a secure landfill facility, a secretariat team was formed and the Registered Office shifted to a rented premise in Ashok Nagar, followed by T. Nagar. Finally in the year of 2018, own office was established in TEN Square Mall, Koyambedu, Chennai.
