HC tells BBMP to educate public on segregating sanitary waste

September 02, 2014 12:00 am | Updated 05:47 am IST - Bangalore:

The High Court of Karnataka on Monday asked the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to take steps to educate the public on the need to segregate sanitary napkins/diapers from other wastes.

The court also asked the BBMP to come out with regulations to streamline the process of building demolition, disposal of debris and other construction wastes akin to the process of permission granted for construction of buildings. A Division Bench comprising Justice N. Kumar and Justice B.V. Nagarathna passed the order during the hearing of a batch of PIL petitions on city’s garbage problem. It was told to court during the hearing that the BBMP does not have a proper mechanism for collection and disposal of sanitary waste.
