Single-Use Plastic Menace Continues To Haunt The City

No matter how much awareness is created about the plastic monster, no matter how many measures are taken, the use of plastic in the city has not decreased. Greater Hyderabad generates about 4,500 tons of garbage per day, out of which 15 to 20 percent is plastic waste. Vegetables, chicken, mutton, groceries, milk packets, and anything like this are available in plastic bags only.


Prohibited plastic covers are found everywhere in merchants. Covers with a thickness of less than 75 microns are mostly used. While the Central Pollution Control Board is increasing the thickness of the microns each year to the detriment of the environment, the use of banned plastics will not decrease. Previously 40 microns, then up to 50 microns were banned. Covers below 75 microns are currently banned. While the use of plastic does not stop, they are dumped everywhere, and also, and the roads and the canals are filled with covers. As a result, it becomes dangerous to public health and the environment.


The GHMC council has previously ruled that single-use plastics should be banned in Greater. Authorities carried out a series of inspections a few months ago. Fines were imposed for single-use plastic. But there are no checks later.  The council is not looking to implement the resolution. We can see single-use plastic almost in every function. 


GHMC authorities can impose fines of up to Rs 10,000 for the first time and up to Rs 25,000 for the second time for the use of plastic covers less than 75 microns in thickness. It has the power to seize stock in the shop along with the fine if used for a third time. Complaints can also be made by calling the GHMC Helpline on 040-21111111 if you find it being used anywhere.
