Kalpana Kar a member of Bangalore Agenda Task Force [BATF] of the Karnataka Government was in charge of the power break fast meet to day.
Satish Bhargava the first speaker felt that, Merchants, Builders, Apartments, Hospitals, Factories, Hoteliers, are the bulk waste generators. These bulk waste generators, Solution providers and government should work hand in hand for the best results. Mixing of garbage should be totally avoided. Provision of multiple bins in each work place or a house hold thus, is the key to avoid mixing. There should be a Value attached to each category of waste. Reclaim all waste of any value to minimize land fill, in short.
Kalpana Kar summarized that Dry waste collection centers for Traders, Hotels and Hospitals is a must. Decentralization is the key for a meaning full waste management. The hospitals in Bangalore need to take special care of sanitary waste. Commitment from big Industries is forth coming according to her. Ajay Nanavati Managing director at 3M Bangalore was sited at this juncture. 
Almitra Patel  had asked for the exact details of how Bangalore hospitals are handling their toxic waste. What I found from a casual enquiry with Manipal hospital was that it depends on a contractor who takes away their waste. I am afraid this certainly is alarming to say the least!
Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) commissioner Siddaiah woke up to the garbage mess that's defacing the city and some of its outskirts, on Saturday, and asserted that there would be no more landfills around 
Siddaiah addressed the gathering mentioning Sarvodaya Nagar MLA KJ George seated next to him. This MLA according to him has taken good initiative with traders, Hospitals and Hoteliers.
To day he was happy to attend this meeting sponsored by CRDAI . CREDAI according to him has good initiative, experience and diligence. The commissioner wished to have Dry waste collection centers in each of 198 wards of Bangalore. He invited the BDA chairman present to extend his support to the cities problem. Interaction on a daily basis would be welcomed.
How many apartments are in Bangalore? No data with BBMP? Land fills can be minimized. Siddaiah mentioned about Nagaraj Reddy the BDA Chairman, and KJ George. George lives in a Tech Park which has 25 companies including Microsoft. . Microsoft Company has 35000 people. These are the people who should make the commitment. He requested Kalpana to have Pilot plants in each zone. He wanted commitment from CREDAI with 600 hand picked builders to be the pilots.
The commissioner alluded next to the Historical Debris. He felt the same should be cleared. The commissioner wanted a commitment from BDA. Follow up action on clearance of debris is also a must. Bye laws need to be scrutinized on a regular basis. Long list of Penal pending actions is a night mare.
In short the BBMP commissioner wanted all 28 hub constituencies with zero dumping and only processing.
Other views floated were:-
The garbage contractors are the mafia. Among 8 wards 4 good 4 bad. No decision across board. Lowest quotation is the stumbling block. Dumping space of 500 acres in a stretch is not possible. Dust bins are required at some places. They cannot be eliminated. Rag pickers need to be trained. We need to re habitat them later. Cook town is ok. No ward is willing to provide any place for any machinery
The Chairman said he has 5 STPs in the tech park. 90% garbage is processed in house. In addition Rain water harvesting compliance is also in place. This tech park has clear drains. A 50 kg Biogas unit is operative. Retrofit solution for elimination of sanitary lines is available.
Local vs Federal debate.
Mr. Venkat Ramanan a renowned Architect was threatened by the Garbage mafia which did make the Architect quit his dream Garbage management project. There are 150 service provides. Cauvery water is limited, so is ground water. We should not pollute ground water. Water Tankers is not a good solution.
Poonam bir Kasturi  felt that Toxic material cannot be identified with naked eye. Batteries poison our environment. However simple solutions are available. Trees are shredding the leaves. These leaves need to be composted locally and not transported or burnt as is done currently by the contractor. Hiding dust bin is a sin.
Sandhya narayanan concluded by saying that what our next generation need is our commitment.
