RESEARCH & IMPLEMENT Rasool, the director of K K Plastic Waste Management Private Limited, tells Bangalore Mirror how the brothers came up with the idea of recycling plastic for roads: ""In 1996, there were demands for a ban on plastic. Our entire livelihood depended on plastic as we manufacture plastic bags for our company called K K Polyflex. We also had about 100-odd employees working with us.
