Project Anmol Kinara recovers and processes low-value, multi-layered plastic waste to stem its flow towards the ocean. The lack of recycling value means that these plastics would otherwise be either dumped into nature or openly burnt, leading to environmental contamination and marine plastic pollution.
Anmol Kinara is a collaboration between rePurpose Global and Mangala Resource Management (a young and innovative start-up running the ‘Zero Waste Village Program’). It runs as a public-private partnership model with local village councils. Plastic is collected from 47 villages in Udupi and neighbouring districts, and transported to the Material Recovery Facility for processing. Through Anmol Kinara, we aim to bring plastic waste management services to all 300+ villages in the region.
