The district panchayat has come up with a solution for the waste disposal woes of every household, especially plastic waste. It aims to set up a plant on 90 cents of land and convert the plastic waste into furnace oil. The project will be implemented with private participation.

“We hope to resolve the plastic waste disposal issue by setting up a plant in 90 cents of land. We are planning to implement project with Browns n Whites, a Kakkanad-based firm. We have submitted the project to the government and have sought the required land for the purpose,” said district panchayat president Eldhose Kunnappillil.
