Waste :Segregated, Aggregated.Problem Aggravated?
This Bangalore Mahanagar Palike garbage collection truck has used plastic bottles neatly packed in three bags hanging behind(click on image to enlarge).
The blue bag on the left has Aquafina bottles. The blue bag on the right has Kinley bottles(click on image to enlarge).
Either the waste segregation system is fantastic (plastic waste packed separately from non-plastic waste and further the plastic waste packed by brand) or is a well planned system to generate spuriously packaged Aquafina and Kinley water bottles(click on image to enlarge).
The next time you buy one of these brands you could just be buying a recycled bottle.The least one can do to get over this problem is to crush water bottles after consuming the water.
