BANGALORE: The most common problem faced by most residential areas in the city especially post the winter season is the accumulation of dry leaves.
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike workers conveniently burn the leaves by overlooking the Commissioner’s order which states otherwise.
There has also been a newspaper notice recently promising the public a reward for bringing such acts of leaf/garbage burning to the notice of the BBMP.
According to Bangalore's composting evangelist Vani Murthy, for instances of leaf burning, one can call the Commissioner's office on 22237455/ 22221286 or shoot an e-mail on comm@ bbmp.gov.in.
There is also a group called Organic Terrace Gardening in Facebook where people around the city post their complaints and share suggestions on turning leaves into something valuable.
With inadequate space for individuals being a major constraint to compost large volume of leaves, community composting of dry leaves can be another option
