MALDA DIVISION’S INITIATIVES FOR CLEAN & GREEN STATIONS


Kolkata, November 19, 2022


Plastic products have become an integral part in our daily life as a basic need. Plastic waste generation is a global scale problem and even our Railway premises are also affected by it. Plastic waste is non-biodegradable as it would remain unfazed for hundreds of years without any decay. The massive consumption of a wide range plastic products generated a huge amount of plastic waste. 

To curb the pollution caused due to increase in plastic waste, Eastern Railway’s Malda Division has launched a campaign - Plastic free premises of Malda Division under the dynamic and inspiring leadership of Shri Vikas Chaube, Divisional Railway Manager/Malda. He has taken an initiative to make the Railway premises free from plastic waste. 

As a part of this initiative, Plastic Bale Making Machine & Plastic Bottle Shredding Machine has been commissioned in Malda Coaching Depot. The collected garbage is segregated into bio-degradable and non-biodegradable waste and fed into the bale making machine. The Shredding Machine compressed it into a cubicle so that bulk of waste which is hard to carry can be transported easily for recycling. The prepared bale & Chips will be sold out to Plastic handler at fixed price. This whole endeavour is the first step towards corporealization of ER’s dream to provide passengers with a CLEAN & GREEN station with the best amenities and services and contribute to the SWACHH BHARAT vision. This initiative will not o­nly to keep the Railway premises clean and environment friendly but also generate non-fare revenue too.
