A scheme to collect plastic waste was launched by PBMC in the month of January. The winners for the Month of January were announced on 5th February 2018 and prize money has been transferred to respective Bank Accounts. Further the scheme was simplified by accepting weekly for the month of February 2018. The first weekly collection for the month of February was accepted on 12.02.2018 and total 1625 Kg plastic bottles/waste was collected. There is a phenomenal increase in the collection as in January the total collection was 602 Kg only. It is expected that total monthly collection for the month of February may cross 5000 Kg. There is visible impact of the scheme in the city because plastic bottles lying on road side has come down.
