When asked about the problem, the Corporation Commissioner C Sivasubramaniam blamed it on the lack of clarity about the kind of plastics that have been banned and added that only the State government could clarify on the issue. He stated that the label on the products saying that they are recyclable can’t be trusted. “Who certified them as recyclable? The labels on the products cannot be trusted. Any manufacturer can claim that his product does not add to pollution. But, only the government can certify a product as recyclable,” he said. “Major garbage producers like Sripuram golden temple, VIT University and Christian Medical College and Hospital strictly follow waste management procedure. No waste comes out of these three institutions,” he added.
