Hyderabad-based `Banyan Nation' has embarked on a mission to rid the city of plastic pollution. The organization recycles around 500-600 tonnes of shampoo bottles, oil bottles, detergent containers, and more. All of these fall under the category of high-density plastics such as polyethylene or polypropylene. These can be recycled and used again multiple times.
