IYCN Karnataka launches the "Community Plastic Waste Reduction and Recycling" programme at Rajendranagar and HSR Layout (2nd Sector) on December 12, 2009.
As per the programme, we plan to do: -
Awareness programme for community.
The first step will be to conduct a series of awareness program to sensitize the community about the importance and need for plastic waste management through street play, music and door-to-door awareness program. This programme is in association with Cambridge School students, H.S.R 2nd sector RWA, Green commandos, Christ University, Saahas and Samarthanam.
Building a system for reduction and recycling of plastic waste.
Reduction of Plastic carry bags - Local shops and shopping complexes in each area will be enrolled for this program, volunteers will encourage people to carry their own shopping bag. A grading system will be setup and points will be credited for households that carry their own shopping bag. The credits will be evaluated once in three months and incentives will be given for the household that carries their bags more often and also to the shops enrolled under this program.
Plastic waste collection system - Specially designed bins for plastic waste collection would be set up at convenient locations. Local kadbadiwallas / ragpickers will be roped in for collection and recycling of this waste.
