Plastic Waste Management Centre (PWMC) was established in the year 2008 at P.O./VILL: BORGAON (BANGLAGARH), HAJO CIRCLE, GUWAHATI and was inaugurated & dedicated to the nation on 22nd July 2010. This centre has been established with the objectives of protecting the environment by recycling plastics waste in the North-Eastern Region, manpower development through training in the field of plastics recycling technology, to promote cost effective recycled plastics material grades for variety end-use applications, to create business and employment opportunities from waste to wealth concept in tackling the issue of plastics waste disposal and to act as a “Centre of Excellence” in Plastics Waste Management in the country.
PWMC consists of State-of-art automatic recycling plant where a universal of mechanical recycling facility will handle all types and forms of plastics materials waste such as PE, PP, PSA, ABS, PET etc. and converting into useful value added products. Plastics Scrap/Waste Collection are sources from Scrap Dealers, NGOs by the involvement of strategic partners such as local entrepreneurs and the industry associations and the recycled granules as well as value added end products would be bought back by these partners thereby making the project ultimately self-sustaining.
A novel project for collection of Plastics waste has been initiated. Two localities have been identified viz Sindorighopa & Banglagarh (from Railway Crossing Chowki Gate to PWMC). 520 Nos. of Plastics dustbins have been distributed, 2 each at every household. Villagers have been requested to store the plastics wastes in the dust bins provided to them. For this purpose, 4 local workers of PWMC have been engaged to collect the wastes from the individual houses. This way the villages will remain free from plastics wastes. The waste so collected are using as raw material for PWMC. Moreover, 10 nos. of professional Plastics waste collectors from Changsari area are also engaged for collection and supplying of Plastics Wastes to PWMC.
