In a first-ever initiative in Tripura, the state has started using non-recyclable plastic waste in the construction of roads with an aim to reduce plastic waste and make the environment plastic-free, said Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Monday.

Speaking to ANI at the inauguration of the first such road, Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said, “This is for the first time in Tripura that waste plastic was collected and recycled, and used in constructing a 680 metre long road in front of the Women’s College near BK Road. This is a first-of-its-kind initiative in Tripura and through this, I would like to set an example of how plastic waste is reduced by putting it to judicious use. This initiative is a beautiful example of how we can make our environment plastic-free and use plastic waste in public welfare projects.”
