A novel project for collection of Plastics waste has been initiated. Two localities have been identified viz Sindorighopa & Banglagarh (from Railway Crossing Chowki Gate to PWMC). 520 Nos. of Plastics dustbins have been distributed, 2 each at every household. Villagers have been requested to store the plastics wastes in the dust bins provided to them. For this purpose, 4 local workers of PWMC have been engaged to collect the wastes from the individual houses. This way the villages will remain free from plastics wastes. The waste so collected are using as raw material for PWMC. Moreover, 10 nos. of professional Plastics waste collectors from Changsari area are also engaged for collection and supplying of Plastics Wastes to PWMC.
