Decision pending on allowing civic body to use dumping yard
Conflicting positions aired by different stakeholders threaten to worsen the waste management problems faced by the Thrikkakara municipality.
The municipality is obviously relaxed over the State government's decision to allow it to use the garbage yard of the Kochi Corporation at Brahmapuram.
The West Bengal Pollution Control Board (WBPCB) will launch a massive campaign against use of plastic carry bags of thickness below 40 microns. The campaign will be launched at Gariahat market of Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) by the state environment minister, Dr Sudarshan Ghosh Dastidar, on 1 July.
New Delhi: With its earlier efforts failing to put an end to use of plastic bags in the city, the Delhi cabinet on Monday passed a bill to do away with the very root of the problem. It banned manufacturing of plastic bags.
