Thiruvananthapuram : Mayor V. K. Prasanth had started laying the foundations of the ‘Ente Nagaram Sundara Nagaram’ by campaigning a drive on Saturday through seven locations within the city, which include Putharikandam, Kesavadasapuram, near Karamana Bridge, Pipinmoodu Junction, Technopark, Chakkai HI Office and Sreekaryam Market where about ten tons of plastic waste was collected.
In addition to the two plastic shredder units established at Muttathara, a further two have also been planned at Peroorkada and Palayam. Trivandrum Corporation also aims to fix a date every month where plastic waste will be collected from the public. Around 140 tons of plastic was collected through a similar drive two months back. We can all expect a capital city completely plastic free in the coming months.
