Aaditya Thackeray – Minister, Maharashtra Govt. :
- Today, we launched the Mithi River Clean-Up project by MMRDA in collaboration with the Marine Debris Partnership.
- This project will make use of a special machine developed by Finland’s RiverRecycle, which would collect floating plastic waste to clean the river and recycle it.
- This pilot project is first of its kind in India and will transform Mithi river.
- Evaluating the trial run, we aim to extend this further to the other rivers in the city.
