5 June 2019 : Pune generates 4 to 5 tons of polythene bag waste every day out of the use of milk and milk products of all the brands. Reloop project will start from Hadapsar and the Pilot will be conducted in the period of 9 months. In this, initially, 230 drop points are created in Hadapsar region to collect milk bag waste. The Pilot project aims to collect 500 to 600 tons of plastic waste in Pune in next 9 months. It will try to reach over 1 lac. customers and 5000 businesses in this period in the city.

Plastic recycle Reloop Program is launched on 5th June on the occasion of World Environment Dayby Chitale Group of Industries and RECYKAL Platform. It is need of the hour to maintain environment balance. Due to modernization, the use of plastic and plastic made products is increasing day by day.   If the plastic is less than 50 microns, it is difficult to disintegrate it.  Therefore, it has been mandatory to use plastic thicker than 50 microns.  But no one has taken the initiative to arrange for the disposal of plastics or goods more than 50 microns.

Being inspired by this thought and cooperating with the government, we are planning to implement this system in all the area we are covering and for the pilot project we have chosen Hadapsar area. This information is given by Mr. Atul Chitale, Mr. Pushkar Chitale, Director of Chitale Group of Industries and Mr. Abhishek Deshpande, Director of UZED Pvt. Ltd.
