BBMP Commissioner Mr. Sidhaiya's advice

207 users have liked.

BBMP Commissioner Mr. Siddaiah spoke about the 7 day programme to encourage the citizens of Bangalore to participate in the cities efforts to come out of the current garbage crisis. He felt that the corporation has been successful bye and large in making the Hoteliers adhere to segregation at source. However the cities house holds are sending the mixed garbage which is responsible for the current crisis.

His advice to the citizens was thus not to mix up garbage, but keep the wet garbage separate. This will help the corporation to collect the same on wet garbage collection days of the week. The goal was to

  1. set up process yards for wet compostable garbage
  2. Further segregation of plastic waste
  3. Plastics Recycling and or recovering energy
  4. Resulting  minimal / zero dumping would be the ultimate solution

The strategy suggested by Mr. Siddaiah thus was

  1. Each house hold not mixing up wet and dry garbage.
  2. Citizens co operation is essential for the corporation to do their bit! 

However the commissioner was silent about enforcement.

  • The contracter should not accept mixed garbage. Why he should care!!?
  • Dry and wet garbage collection on different days of the week. Was announced by the earlier commissioner but never enforced by the current.
  • Any deterent for the contracter not to mix up?
  • What is the incentive for the contracter to care about segrigation? comment guidelines
