Over 20,000 empty plastic water bottles that are discarded everyday by passengers travelling in trains passing through the Ahmedabad railway station will now be recycled.

Last week, the Western Railway (WR) installed a bottle crushing machine to help recycle the plastic waste generated daily at the station, a top official of the railway said.

“On an average, more than 20,000 empty water bottles are discarded at the railway station. We found it difficult to dispose of this kind of waste. We were not able to either transport them or clean them on a regular basis.

To tackle this menace, a bottle crushing machine was installed on platform number 12,” said Pradeep Sharma, Public Relations Officer, Western Railway. More info
