Thimmaiah, a farmer practising organic farming in Kunigal, has come forward to give his one acre land to dump wet waste, provided the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP)  sends pure organic waste.

More than 50 farmers practising organic farming met BBMP Commissioner Rajneesh Goel on Tuesday and were ready to take wet waste, bringing some hopes of relief to the civic body.

Thimmaiah said, “I will give my one acre land, provided BBMP sends wet waste excluding plastic, polythene bags, glass and metal pieces. I can covert it to manure and sell,” he said.  Commissioner Rajneesh Goel said that farmers from 32 different taluks are located within 100 km radius from BBMP limits. Wet waste generated at Yelahanka, Rajarajeshwarinagar and Mahadevapura has already takers including local MLAs. “Therefore, wet waste generated from core Bangalore will be sent to farmers,” he said.

He said if farmers have queries they can contact technical assistant Mohan Kumar (94806 83337).
