Best Initiatives: In addition to the targets above, the Campaign has paved the way for several good practices. As part of best initiatives, the PSUs under the Ministry have undertaken the following initiatives: –

  1. Plastic to Paver

To tackle the menace of Single use Plastic waste, Eastern Coalfileds Limited has set up Solid Waste Management unit, which has transformed single-use plastic into a valuable resource. The campaign was executed in three key steps:

Efficient Waste Collection: ECL proactively collected solid waste from the Bankola Area Colony and collaborated with registered vendors to gather plastic waste from outside the leasehold area


Segregation of waste: ECL’s dedicated team sorted various waste types, including plastic, paper, and other discarded items, ensuring that each material is reused or recycled.

Innovative Plastic Waste Processing: The most noteworthy practice is transformation of plastic waste into useful end products. ECL’s Plastic Waste Handling Unit in Bankola Area ingeniously converted these discarded plastics into paver blocks and bricks, creating valuable resources out of what was once considered waste.

      Rain Water Harvesting:

New Initiatives have been undertaken by ECL under the Special campaign 3.0. Rain water harvesting structures at Rajmahal area, CISF camp at Sonepur Bazari area and Mugmu area have been constructed.  

Cleanliness drive undertaken at 62 spots was a huge success with spontaneous participation by one and all.

The beautiful garden at Jagannath Area Regional Store under Jagannath Area of MCL has been developed from scrap material.

Children Park

Under the special campaign 3.0, the beautification of Koyla Nagar, Dhanbad situated Quarter No. -D 15, Sector-3 has been done by CMPDI, Regional Institute-2, Dhanbad. Front area of D-15 (GYM), Sector -3, Koyala Nagar Dhanbad has been converted into  a children park with swings installed.



This Special Campaign promotes best practices and sets an example of waste management that inspires others to follow.
