The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has set up domestic sanitary waste collection centres in 22 wards.
According to a press release here on Tuesday, to begin with, the centres have been set up only in wards chosen for the zero garbage programme. Residents have been requested to segregate waste. Only wet waste should be handed over to the pourakarmikas.
Sanitary waste, comprising sanitary napkins, disposable diapers, cotton wool, syringes etc., may be kept separately and handed over to the pourakarmikas. Else, citizens may also personally drop off the domestic sanitary waste at these centres.
When the zero garbage programme is extended to all wards, these centres would be set up in all wards as well, a senior BBMP official said.
