Plastic garbage spoiling Himachal Pradesh tourism

Kufri, January 29(ANI): The plastic garbage scattered in the Kufri region of Himachal Pradesh has been disappointing the tourists visiting the region. Although Himachal Pradesh became the first state in India to impose a ban on the use of plastic bags on June 5, 2004, many shopkeepers across the state continue to use plastic bags in gross violation of the law. The plastic waste scattered in and around the Mahasu Peak, one of the chief attractions of the Kufri region, is spoiling its beauty.

    Bangalore , Chennai have used waste plastic + Bitumen in roads . No potholes and life 6 yrs . Urban & Rural roads . Process is simple (careful sorting and size control). Contact KKPLASTIC WASTE MGMT Bangalore / Thiagrajar Coll Engineering Madurai Dr vasudevan. Any palstic (NOT PVC) incl laminated wrapper (buiscuit packs) will do. Will take care of all waste plastics in India.
    Pakistan , Bangaladesh have shown interest. Banning plastic bags will not do. Local politics may delay it. SM Krishna CM Karnataka 2001 gave approval for use in Bangalore after test run.
    All major roads in Bangalore have this tech since 2002 no potholes there. MEDIA should pick it up from here. PRADHAN MANTRI GRAMEEN SADAK YOJANA & CRRI Delhi and MIN RURAL DEV have got it implemented. Surf the NET and get better view
    Plastic thin bags is not the problem. Our nonexistent garbage collection is to blame coupled with our inherent gene that says let others do the dirty work.
    Waste plastics have been used to CREATE WALLETS (sold in Europe) CONSERVE, REDUCED TO OIL (Zadgaonkar NAGPUR), USED WITH BITUMEN FOR ROADS WITH LONGER LIFE & NO POT HOLES (KKPLASTICS BANGALORE / THIAGARAJAR COLL ENGG MADURAI).
    Where is the problem ? MUNICIPAL BODIES control road contract. Would they want a long lasting road at slightly higher cost with no repeat work on same road for next 10 yrs?
    Our attitude binds us. Those who read this pl get media to follow up on what has been done in Bangalore / TN rural /IIT Kharagpur/ WB Kalyani …in plastic green roads.
