District administration yet to start recycling units under MAP

Not a single plastic recycling unit has till date started functioning under any of the local bodies in the district though the district administration had promised to set up a few of them in different parts of the district as part of its much hyped MAP (Mass Action for Plastic-waste-fee Kozhikode) project two years ago. However, a few private entrepreneurs have taken up the responsibility of freeing the district from the bane of plastic waste even before the city Corporation set up its much awaited recycling unit at West Hill.
