Despite Bombay High Court relaxation, BMC manages to collect 1.2 lakh kg plastic waste

Ever since the ban on plastic has come into effect, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has collected around 1.2 lakh kg plastic, including door-to-door collection and from garbage bins put up across the city.

Though the Bombay High Court has okayed plastic use for three months, the BMC decided to continue its preparation for implementation of plastic ban in the city. Apart from putting dust bins in 24 wards, the civic administration also started door-to-door collection.
