Mumbaikers who are travelling by trains can now use their waste plastic to get paid. Not just that, they will be making sure that the plastic isn’t harming environment.

This is all possible due to the Swachh Bharat Recycle Machine. These machines are being installed in 10 of the suburban stations in the city.

Anyone can use the waste plastic they have and end up with a reward for doing it. It’s a win-win situation.

As a pilot project, this machine was set up at just one place, the Churchgate railway station. This was last year. Due to the success of the machine and tens of thousands of commuters using it, the initiative is being spread to other stations.

The machines will very soon be coming to several stations including Borivali, Bandra, Dadar, and Goregaon.

The machines are designed to be used easily. They look like regular vending machines and don’t take much space.

Anyone with an empty plastic bottle can feed it to the machine. It will be processed and then crushed. The crushed plastic will later be collected and recovered for recycling purposes.

After that, the user gets rewards for using the machine in the form of discount coupons from Sahakari Bhandar and Reliance Fresh Stores.

They can also choose to take Paytm credit points or choose donation for the money they would receive.

These machines were made by Wockhardt Foundation. It is an NGO which usually works to help underprivileged people.

Its CEO said that such machines are much needed in India because the amount of untreated waste in the country is growing severely. Not doing anything will have severe repercussions to everyone.

Recycling has become very crucial especially in terms of plastic. Plastic doesn’t decompose easily, this causes waste to be dumped which in turn affects Eco systems.
