Hailakandi: The Hailakandi Municipal Board has opened a plastic bank where citizens can go and deposit the banned plastic items which will be sent for recycling. Inaugurating the plastic bank at Hailakandi Municipal Board in presence of Executive Officer Prodip Timung, ward members, SHG members and other officials of the municipal board on Thursday, Deputy Commissioner Keerthi Jalli said this initiative has been taken to bring about behavioural modification and encouraging an eco-friendly lifestyle. “Under Swachhata Hi Seva campaign, single-use of plastic has been banned. We feel banning and penalizing is the easier part. The bigger challenge is in bringing about behavioural modification and encouraging an eco-friendly lifestyle,” said Jalli.
