Decade after they were removed, dustbins reappear in City 20.12.2014 deccanherald.com
Dustbins are back in the City. Not just the colourful wet and dry waste ones but even the big concrete bins which were found in every road corner over a decade ago. This trend has resurfaced due to the failure of the door-to-door system of garbage collection, especially in commercial areas. Interestingly, while these dustbins are being set up by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) itself, waste management experts assert that this is not a good move. Speaking to Deccan Herald, BBMP Commissioner N Lakshminarayana, said, "We have found that the door-to-door system of garbage collection has not been successful in slums and commercial areas mainly because collection timings do not match. Also, in Chickpet and Avenue Road, waste is generated continously." He added that the Palike is setting up dustbins only in areas where there is a tendency for a lot of waste to accumulate. Presently, wet and dry waste bins have been installed in prime City commercial spaces and near slums. They have only been set ...

Pulling up the housing body, the standing committee said that the DDA has only furnished partial information to the ministry “with regard to the targets for the construction of low-cost housing and LIG housing in the past 20 years, the DDA has submitted a half-baked reply that includes only the details of the houses constructed ...
