Segregating garbage at its source will henceforth be mandatory. Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will issue an order to this effect within a week.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, BBMP’s new Commissioner Rajneesh Goel said, “Following the garbage crisis, BBMP is interacting with agencies and taking their inputs for proper segregation of waste. Experts have insisted on segregating garbage at its source.”
“BBMP will issue an order before Sunday. Accordingly, citizens have to segregate wet and dry waste and give it to pourakarmikas who come for door-to-door collection,” he stated.
Goel said there will be three different colour binsgreen, white and black. Residents have to segregate wet, dry and other waste in these bins as suggested in Solid Waste Management Rules, 2000.
Public will have to buy these bins from the authorised dealers.
