The display will help people understand the various categories and the need to do it. Five categories of waste will be exchanged for money to emphasise the fact that what we call waste has value when segregated. These categories are PET bottles Rs 10/- per kg, hard plastic Rs 8/- per kg, cardboard Rs 4/- per kg, aluminium/Metal Cans Rs 0.5/- per can, mixed metal Rs 5/- per kg.
Further, a ‘plastic dovor, mask vhor’, a plastic exchange programme will be setup alongside the money exchange programme. Any person who deposits 10 pieces PET bottles, 20 pieces biscuit packets, 15 pieces medium large plastic bags or 10 pieces mixed plastic at the counter will be provided with a cloth mask stitched by one of the waste picker working at the Material Recovery Facility in St. Inez.
Every individual who deposits waste at the counters will receive a coupon that will entitle him/her to be part of the Waste Tour of the City on November 7, Saturday. For those who cannot make it to the Waste Tour, the coupon will remain valid for a few more days and will be allowed to visit the Material Recovery Facility in St Inez at a predetermined time.
The waste exchange programme is organized as part of the HDFC-UNDP funded dry waste management programme being operated in the City of Panjim in association with Corporation of the City of Panjim. The programme is jointly implemented on ground by the team of 21 Century Polymers and Mineral Foundation of Goa.
