BBMP seeks details of garbage

What is the exact composition of dry waste, wet waste and inerts in garbage generated in the wards? How many black spots (places where garbage is dumped) are there in a particular ward? How many garbage vehicles and pourakarmikas are involved in the collection and disposal of waste?

It is with the hope of finding answers to these questions and more that the BBMP has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Forward Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, and Electronic City Township Authority (ELCITA).

A study will be taken up by Forward Foundation in 44 wards, which will be funded by ELCITA.

To begin with, it will be taken up in five wards, following which a report will be submitted to the BBMP, sources said. The five wards are Moodalapalya, Kaveripura, Kamakshipalya, Nayandanahalli and Rajajinagar.

BBMP Commissioner M. Lakshminarayan clarified that the civic body will not be spending anything for the study. “The report will help us ascertain the ground reality. The black spots will be mapped and we will know the exact characteristic of waste generated. Once the report is submitted, we will take a call on whether it should be extended to other wards,” he added.
