Milk Sachets & Pet Bottles to be Collected & Recycled: DKMUL Attempts to Reduce Plastic Pollution

September 28: Dakshina Kannada Cooperative Milk Union Ltd. (DKMUL) will launch a milk sachet and plastic pet bottle collection scheme in Dakshina Kannada and Udupi districts on October 2 in its attempt to reduce environment pollution through plastic.
(DKMUL) President Raviraj Hegde, said that this step is taken to  extend support to Centre’s ‘Swacchata Hi Seva’ campaign. He said that the union would ensure the scientific disposal of milk, curd, butter milk plastic sachets and CPP (cast polypropylene) bottles of the flavoured milk by collecting directly them from customers through dealers.

Hegde mentioned that DKMUL is the first among the 14 unions under Karnataka Milk Federation in the State to launch this initiative of recycling the plastic sachets and the CPP bottles.
Hegde said that its network of over 1,650 dealers and 104 milk delivery vans would be used for collecting used sachets and pet bottles. The union has held meetings with dealers and transporters on this. The customers can hand over the cleaned sachets to the dealers, who in turn will hand it over to the milk supplying vehicles that will transport it to the DKMUL office. The DKMUL has authorised M/s Nature Friendly Recycle Industries and Dry Waste Handling as a nodal agency to recycle the collected sachets and bottles. he also mentioned that DKMUL would print a message on milk packets on how to clean plastic sachets after use and return them for recycling in the coming days so as to sensitise consumers on environment protection.
