3 drivers booked for dumping trash 12.12.2015 deccanherald.com
Three trucks dumped waste in a residential area at Sumanahalli Junction on Saturday morning. One of the trucks stationed by the roadside was set on fire by residents. The incident occurred at around 7 am at Beggars' Colony and the fire brigade rushed to douse the blaze. The six wheels of the truck were completely gutted in the incident, said the police. The Rajarajeshwarinagar zone joint commissioner Dr Veerabhadrappa confirmed that the truck was set on fire by local residents. "The BBMP has made it mandatory to receive segregated garbage at its processing units at Kannahalli, Sigehalli and Doddabidirakallu. However, the contractors who have bagged the contracts to transport the garbage, especially in central Bengaluru, are increasingly using private vehicles to lift the unsegregated garbage. They bring the vehicles late in the night, lift the garbage and dump it on roadsides. The BBMP and local police have intensified night patrolling to identify such trucks and take action," he added. The BBMP zonal ...

Clean Vidyaranyapura, a model to emulate 12.12.2015 deccanherald.com
With the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palilke (BBMP) faltering in ensuring smooth disposal of garbage in the City, a few spirited citizens of Vidyaranyapura have taken upon the responsibility themselves. Forty-five people representing various layouts of Vidyaranyapura have come together to form a group 'Clean Vidyaranyapura' with the objective of monitoring garbage disposal and waste management. This local community can teach a thing or two to BBMP on how to tackle the city's mountains of muck. Started two months back, the team represents various areas such as Raghavendra Colony, Balaji Layout and Teachers Layout. The team members keep tabs on the streets and catch people red-handed dumping garbage. They have been successful in getting black spots cleared by vigorously pursuing the matter with civic agency officials in the locality. It all started when the residents found many black spots along the streets and decided that they should themselves get them cleared. Nishand R, one of the team members, ...

A peek into a trash management plant 12.12.2015 deccanherald.com
A small contingent of riot police with a van guard the 29 acres garbage processing facility at Kannahalli, a powerful model of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palikes (BBMP) approach to end the garbage problem in a scientific way. The Palike has earned so much notoriety in handling the Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) that people hardly rely upon its efforts, however sincere it may be. It spoilt Mavallipura, Mandur, villages near Terra Firma and the MSGP landfills to the extent that people had to resort to vehement protests. Use of force to suppress the agitation helped aggravate the unrest. Bengaluru has extended up to Kannahalli, with houses coming up too close to the facility and driving up real estate prices. Given the poor track record of handling waste, the protests are obvious. Adding fuel to the peoples fear are the power struggle within the State cabinet, ego clash among ministers and the fear among the garbage mafia of losing their job. The facility inside the Kannahalli garbage plant is proof that the ...
