The BBMP filed an affidavit before the High Court on Friday stating it has marked six places to dump waste.

 A contractor told the court that the BBMP had not identified a place to dump waste and villagers near Mandur landfill site had assaulted the BBMP workers who had gone to dump garbage.

 He had sought orders to find other places.

 Hearing the petition, a Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice B V Nagarathna asked the counsel representing the BBMP, “How can contractors dump garbage if you do not provide them a place?” The counsel representing the BBMP said the BBMP had identified land at six places to dump the garbage-Yalaguppe (10 acres), Sunkadakatte (15 acres), Kallabalu (63 acres), Challaghatta (10 acres), Bagalur ( 13 acres) and Indlawadi (11 acres).

 He added the BBMP has filed an application before the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) for approval.

 Hearing the petition, the bench adjourned the case to November 5.

 The court also relaxed a BBMP norm of one trip per vehicle, per day to lift garbage from the city and dispose it of at the landfill sites.

 The direction follows the petition that if multiple trips are permitted, garbage will be completely lifted in the city
