170 South Mumbai buildings dispose over 100kg plastic waste

Almost a week after kicking off their campaign to prepare for the plastic ban that comes into force post June 23, residents of Colaba collected more than 100kgs of plastic waste from 170 buildings in A municipal ward over the weekend.

The #quitplasticmovement covers A municipal ward (consisting of parts of Fort, Ballard Estate, Colaba and Marine Drive). During the weekend, student volunteers, resident associations and two volunteers provided by former Member of Parliament (MP) Milind Deora, with the help of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which provided them with two collection vans, collected more than 100kgs of plastic waste.
