City Corporation clueless over plastic menace

Source: New Indian Express, Date: June , 2016

The Corporation faces a daunting challenge at managing plastic waste after a recent High Court directive banned burning of solid waste and plastic in public places. While it is a welcome relief for the general public who had been suffering from toxic fumes, the local bodies will find it tough to manage waste without a sound waste management system. Health standing committee chairman of the Corporation K Sreekumar said the Corporation welcomed the decision and would give strict instructions to officials not to burn waste in public. However, sanitation workers who are engaged in keeping the city clean were not provided with another alternative, said a health official.
