Animal-Waste

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has taken initiatives for safe disposal of animal waste generated during Bakrid. The city civic agency has buried the waste in deep pits across the city.

Sources said the city generated around 250 tonnes of animal waste during Bakrid, which is three times more compared to a regular day. To ensure proper disposal of animal waste, the BBMP claimed it had supplied containers and plastic drums to areas where sacrifices were  made.

BBMP Commissioner Rajneesh Goel said around 10,000 big animals and around 30,000 small animals had been sacrificed in Pulikeshinagar and surrounding areas since Saturday.

“Animal waste is not being sent to Mandur landfill. It is buried in deep pits in various BBMP sites to avoid external hazards. We have already sent a circular to all the zonal offices instructing officials on handling bio-waste,” he said. Measures have also been taken to ensure that waste is packed in plastic bags and disposed of separately in apartments and individual houses.

Garbage cleared

Meanwhile, heaps of garbage lying unattended in many places like Chikkabanaswadi, Sevanagar, Jaibharath Nagar and other parts of Bangalore East were cleared.

“The BBMP is collecting the garbage on a daily basis and we do not see any heaps of garbage on roads like earlier,” said Dayanand N, a resident of Kasturi Nagar, East Of NGEF, Bangalore.
