BANGALURU: With the High Court directing that the two-bins-one-bag formula to segregate waste at the source be implemented, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike sees a silver lining. However, the system comes with its own challenges.

BBMP Commissioner Kumar Naik told Express that all these days, people were not segregating waste though segregation is a must according to the Municipal Solid Waste Management Act. “This will be a tall task for BBMP. Now that we have got support from the High Court, it is easier for us to tell the public,” he said.

Srinivasa Morab, Secretary of AG Layout Residents’ Welfare Association said that all these days the BBMP was the residents to segregate wet and dry waste. Now there is the rejects (hazardous) section too. “People should segregate waste. It will take a few minutes to segregate at source. Once we start practising this, it will become a habit,” he said.

Malini Bhat, who is a software engineer with a company in Bellandur, said that her husband and she leave home early. “Should I keep two bins and one bag outside my compound? What is the guarantee that my bins will not be stolen?” she asked.
