Five days after issuing notice for segregation of waste at source, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) on Thursday issued another notice on the segregation of waste by any public or commercial entity which generates 100 kg wet waste or more per day.

The new order will come into effect from October 1.

The bulk generators of waste include hotels, shopping complexes, malls, wedding halls, convention halls, temples and residential apartments (having 10 units and more), institutions, public offices, railway stations and bus stands which generate 100 kg or more wet waste per day.

According to the notification, the bulk generators should not mix wet waste with any other types of waste.

Wet waste and garden waste generated should be composted at source or processed by using bio-methanisation technique.

If composting wet waste at site is not possible due to non availability of space, the bulk generators have to make alternative arrangements, either by handing over wet waste to private composters daily or to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike wet waste collectors by paying some charges.

The notice also stresses on retaining dry waste within their premises and hand over it directly to the nearest authorised dry waste collection centres.

The notification also specifies that shop keepers, vendors and hawkers have to keep two separate containers for wet and dry waste at the site.

According to the notice, it is their responsibility to deliver this segregated waste to the authorised waste collectors.

The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike will impose a penality if they fail to do this. Also, no waste  of any kind shall be disposed of at any time  on the streets, public places and vacant sites, it stated.

The civic body can impose penalty on those who violate these rules, the notice  stated.
