Speaking during the launch of Gazab Street, Mahender Singh Tawar, said “Such types of projects are the need of the hour and more such streets should be developed to promote recycling of plastic waste. This will motivate people to adopt waste recycling and reusing”.

Gazab Street developed to promote plastic recycling in Ghaziabad

This 250-meter-long street is developed under the CSR initiative of the supporting partners in an area that was once covered with filth and remained abandoned & unutilized by anyone until now.

Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam decided to beautify the street by installing panels made from recycled plastic waste and equipping those panels with vertical gardens designed by reusing plastic bottles.

Each vertical garden is allocated to each supporting brand partner. The road in conjunction with the panel’s wall was also repaired to fill the holes in it.

The other wall alongside the road is having murals. Some of the slabs to cover the drain passing through the street are also made from recycled plastic waste.

Furthermore, Gazab Street is equipped with benches to sit made from recycled plastic waste.

Commissioner, Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam, and the Indian Pollution Control Association conceived the idea of Plastic Tourism in the year 2020 in order to project and identify Ghaziabad as a city that is an avid promoter of recycling.
