600 kg banned plastic seized in Udupi

A team led by Udupi CMC environment engineer Subramanya and health officers has been conducting raids in the city limits. Sources in the CMC said that the officials will suspend the raid temporarily and will start the operation after August 10.

In a memorandum submitted to the Deputy Commissioner Dr M T Reju, the traders said that the CMC officials have not only seized plastic carry bags of less than 40 micron thickness but have also taken away grocery bags. They said “the officials should seize only the carry bags and Polypropylene should not be seized.”
