Haridwar to get 3 ton/day plastic waste recycling facility
The Department of Panchayati Raj is setting up a 3 ton per day capacity, Common Waste Plastic Recycling Plant in Haridwar of Uttarakhand. The facility when ready would be able to treat all recyclable plastic waste collected from villages; a task that is normally a challenge given the hilly terrain, geographical conditions and inadequate transportation facilities.
Construction of Community Sanitary Complexes (CSCs) as a part of the ongoing Samudayik Shauchalaya Abhiyan (SSA) is making headway across the country as 17 districts have achieved 100 per cent CSC coverage (at least one geo-tagged CSC in every village).
To provide insights into the various elements of ODF Plus, how it can be measured and the implementation process, the Department of Drinking Water and Sanitation, Ministry of Jal Shakti organised a webinar for State and District officials from across the country.
