Road construction for the first time in the state using plastic waste from the sea. It uses plastic from the 'Sanitation Ocean' project launched by the government to collect plastic waste. St. John de Brito Church Road, Shakthikulangara, Kollam, situated in the state of Kerala is being tarred with plastic waste. Tender procedures for the project have started. The length of the road is 1.3 km. The road, which is under the control of the Fisheries Department, is being constructed by the Harbor Engineering Department.
The government has decided to implement the 'Sanitation Ocean' project to remove plastic waste, which poses a threat to marine habitats. The project was jointly implemented by the Department of Fisheries, Harbor Engineering, Sanitation Mission, SAF, Central Government Agency Netfish and Kollam District Boat Owners Association at Neendakara and Shakthikulangara harbors. Plastic waste was collected from Ashtamudi lake. Fishermen were given bags to collect waste. Workers abandoned their plastic fishing nets and old nets at sea and brought them ashore in bags. So far, 12 tonnes of waste has been removed from the sea. Of this, seven and a half tons of waste is stored in powdered packets. This plastic is used for road construction.
