Over 1L plastic bottles recycled in 10 months

More than 1 lakh plastic bottles have been recycled in the last 10 months with the help of crushing machines installed at 10 Metro stations on the Versova-Andheri-Ghatkopar corridor as part of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.

The bottles were collected from Metro commuters who are offered discount vouchers in exchange.

The Mumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) tied up with Wild West Media for installation of the crushing machines.

Some 1.12 lakh plastic bottles were recycled between July 2017 and April 2018.
