Ludhiana, June 4

On the eve of World Environment Day, Dayanand Medical College and Hospital (DMC&H) inaugurated a plastic bottle crushing machine/vending machine outside the cafe.

It has been placed for the visitors to dispose of their plastic bottles and cans in the machine rather than throwing them in the dustbin.

Bipin Gupta, secretary of DMC&H Managing Society, said reducing plastic waste is essential to achieve the Sustainable Development Goal targets, which call for a substantial reduction of waste through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.

"We should all contribute in every possible way to reduce plastic waste and opt for alternatives for daily use," he said.

Dr Sandeep Sharma, Medical Superintendent at DMC&H, said, "It is our duty as smart citizens to contribute towards the efforts of making the city clean and beautiful by reducing waste and opt for proper disposal of waste. Small steps in the direction can lead to bigger achievements in the future."

The Tribune, now published from Chandigarh, started publication on February 2, 1881, in Lahore (now in Pakistan). It was started by Sardar Dyal Singh Majithia, a public-spirited philanthropist, and is run by a trust comprising four eminent persons as trustees.

The Tribune, the largest selling English daily in North India, publishes news and views without any bias or prejudice of any kind. Restraint and moderation, rather than agitational language and partisanship, are the hallmarks of the paper. It is an independent newspaper in the real sense of the term.

The Tribune has two sister publications, Punjabi Tribune (in Punjabi) and Dainik Tribune (in Hindi).
