Mumbai: Over 150 MT banned plastic lying in godown, no clarity on disposal

Though the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has already collected around 150 metric tonnes of banned plastic, there is no mechanism available to dispose them off. The civic body is currently exploring ways to dispose of plastic waste.

As per the provision, the collected plastic waste has to be given to only those organisations who can scientifically recycle or dispose it of. However, no such organisation exists in Mumbai.
