Residents groups in Kalyaninagar area of Pune have set up a Resource Recycling Centre (RRC) with the help of Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) at the civic playground located in the area.

The centre will segregate nine different waste materials into separate categories including paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, broken glass, e-waste, metal, tetrapak and thermocol waste.

Citizens can drop off the waste on weekends and the collected material will be handed over to responsible recyclers. Volunteers from the area were running the waste collection initiative in an informal manner since the past 18 months. Now, they have set up an organized facility, reports The Times of India.
