Plastic Ban From 01-07-2011
From 01-07-2011 plastic and plastic products below 40 micron is being banned in Thrissur Corporation jurisdiction. It seems to be a mile stone in the sphere of health history of Thrissur. With the aid of public participation Corporation intends to use paper, cloth bags etc instead of these hazardous plastic products. Many merchants organisation and other welfare organisations has came up to supply paper, cloth bags to the needed people at free of cost.
These plastic products were truly a poisonous and dangerous to the earth and sanitation as well. With the ban of these plastics we can see a change in the sanitation field. Corporation propose to collect biological waste and these plastic waste separately. Plastic waste will be powdered and recycled and use them in road tarring etc. Corporation has purchased machinery for this.
In short there will be a sharp change in the sphere of sanitation and health.
