Pune adopts trash in road building

    Plastic Waste Pune Road
    The Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has found a way to channel plastic waste by laying a road made of trash. The construction of such a road began recently at the 150 metre stretch of Bhagwat lane at Navi Peth near Vaikunth Crematorium. It may be recalled that PMC has used bitumen technology on waste plastic, ranging from poly bags to biscuit packets. For its construction, 220 tonnes of aggregate (rock), 11tonnes of bitumen and 1 tonne of 2.36 mm shredded waste plastic, adhering strictly to the Indian Road Congress (IRC) guidelines. The plastic has been provided by Rudra Environmental Solutions India Ltd. (RESIL) and has been collected by Keshav Sita Memorial Foundation Trust. It was processed at the RESIL plant in Jejuri. Suresh Jagtap, head of PMC's solid waste management department said adding that about one ton of shredded plastic is being used for the construction of this road.
