Imphal, Dec 29: A function was organised today in connection with the ongoing plastic free awareness campaign in Ward number 18 of Imphal Municipal Corporation which was launched by MLA of Yaiskul Assembly constituency Th Satyabrata. The primary objective of the function is to make the ward free of plastic waste products and ensure complete stoppage to use of plastic bags there, according to volunteers. Beside Satyabrata, who himself is a resident of the ward, the campaign is also spearheaded by its sitting corporator L Inunganbi Chanu. A unique policy adopted under the campaign will be monetary payment to householders in the wards in exchange for their plastic waste products. Such, the residents there have been advised not to discard their plastic in conventional ways but to hand over the items to officials deputed for the campaign and received some financial return. The plastic waste products collected from each household will be processed in mechanised units and recycled into raw materials for manufacturing fresh products.
