As summer is approaching the requirement of water bottle naturally increases and the waste  generated by  used  plastic bottles  will be  affected the cleanliness of Mysuru  - o­ne of the cleanest  Railway stations in India. A innovative way to dispose of hundreds of plastic bottles generated Station is thought off at this Railway. To respond to this passenger need, an automatic, noiseless Pet Bottle Crushing Machine has been installed o­n Platform No. 1 at Mysuru at cost of Rs. 3,04,000/-.

The Machine starts and stops automatically based o­n the plastic bottle feed. o­nce a bottle is inserted machine starts automatically and disintegrates the bottle into fine piece of plastic which are then released.

Mysuru Railway Division is in the process of entering in to MOU with plastic manufactures for collecting the crushed plastic pieces which will give sundry revenue also to the Division. Based upon the experience gained, more such machines shall be installed in other important stations of SWR. Railway is trying to explore the avenue of Corporate Social Responsibility organisations also to promote installation of this ecofriendly system.
