    As many as 15 numbers of plastic banks have been installed by Sivasagar Municipal Board for collection of plastic bottles which can also be used as a primary material recovery facility for plastic waste items.

    The plastic banks are also installed at 14 other places in the town. They are as follows: Central Market opposite Lakhmi cinema hall; Temple road opposite Damini Medical Store; Temple road opposite old Civil Hospital; DC office complex; Sivasagar Shiva Temple area; Station Chariali market; ASTC bus station; J P Agarwalla Path opposite Nivedan; Babu Patty opposite LIC building; Hospital Road, GNG Path opposite Rasaraj Hotel; AT Road opposite 1-India Bazaar; Jengonikatia, near SP office in MI Road; BG Road, near ONGC market; and Boarding Road opposite Natya Mandir.
