As BBMP is slowly progressing towards creating awareness, on Wednesday, it was seen that just 20 per cent of the households have been covered under door-to-door campaign in K R Puram.
On Day 3, BBMP officials started the campaign and residents seemed equally enthusiastic. In Kashi Vishwanatha Layout, even children were curious to learn about segregation of garbage. Some of them who were prepared, had different plastic bins for dry waste and wet waste.
“We never segregated waste until the Mandur landfill row erupted. Now, we have realised the importance and are happy to segregate waste. In another two months, based on different models, we will use the wet waste for composting and gardening the area,” said Bheemasena Murthy of K V Layout.
However, some were unaware of what to do with segregated garbage. “We have no instructions either from the BBMP or the contractor on how to segregate and dispose garbage,” said Nagalakshmi N, a pourakarmika, in K R Puram.
