In an initiative to motivate the public to dispose of plastic bottles for recycling, the South Central Railways has installed machines for crushing and recycling plastic bottles at select stations in Hyderabad.

These machines have the capacity to crush around 5,000 bottles per day and the crushed bottles are sold as scrap in the market or to be re-used to make bags and T-shirts.

At present, the Kachiguda, Secunderabad and Nizamabad stations along with Vijayawada in Andhra Pradesh have been installed with these machines.

The aim is to not just prevent littering, but also to discourage the use of plastic, thus protecting the environment.
