In this city-wide campaign, citizens will work together with corporators and pourakarmikas to eliminate black spots (unhealthy garbage dumps) and give their localities a makeover.

In this first project of the Bangalore-wide campaign, Prof. Rajeev Gowda and his team in association with Ms. Foujiya Begum, the Corporator of Manorayanapalya, and local citizens under the leadership of Abdul Wajid will demonstrate how they have fixed a black spot that has existed for 8 years.

Many times dustbins are stolen/vandalised by people. They steal/vandal allmost everything. So next demand is to have police system/community patrol working ! :)

Genrally I have seen in Pune and Mumbai  metal type in Public places and Garbage truck lift them directly and pour the garbage into truck and keep them back.

Or even Cement type like 2 Meter pipe  can be placed.

Kumble, Srinath to join clean-up drive

105 users have liked.

The ongoing drive to clean up K.R. Market will get a spot of cricketing glamour if Mayor B.S. Sathyanarayana has his way. He has invited Karnataka’s well-known cricketing icons Anil Kumble and Javagal Srikanth to join the drive and inspire more youngsters to pitch in.

The Mayor said actor-turned-politician M.H. Ambareesh had also agreed to join the cleaning drive. “I request litterateurs also to join this important exercise to keep the markets in the city clean,” he said. comment guidelines
