Recycle value of used bottles
BIS types of organisations need to set standards for such things. Recycle value has to be x% of the product value. Or companies should be paying 1% of revenue as environment cess. more
Reusable plastic does not mean to be reused for packaging the same material ,but it means that it can be recycled and used in other industries. Food grade plastic used for packaging food items and liquids is never recycled plastic it is always virgin plastic means freshly created form chemicals.
Food grade plastic is the mostly thrown by the consumers after use in waste (garbage). It is the single most cause for the plastic pollution faced by the world.
The government in an effort to deter the consumers from throwing away this plastic in garbage decided to incentivize consumers by offering a buyback for the used plastic packaging material. Please note this applies only for food grade virgin plastic.
The used plastic collection centers were to be set up for this, to facilitate consumers to sell of the used packaging material. However it seems that this has not happened on a large scale.
Also it is true that the buyback value offered is very low to actually entice consumers to adopt this idea.
Probably the government needs to come up with some other idea. more
