Plastic collection bins overflow with garbage

The BMC’s ambitious plans to collect plastic seem to have gone kaput as citizens have filled the civic bodies with all sorts of garbage.

Following the state’s ban on plastic, the BMC, earlier this month, brought in huge collection bins and placed them at 25 locations near big market areas so that citizens could dispose of their plastic bags. However, it has come to light that residents are dumping every other form of garbage in these bins.
