The waste side of West Bengaluru 16.11.2014 deccanherald.com
With the garbage disposal crisis staring the citizens and BBMP in the eye, the desperate question being asked around is where to dispose of the muck? There is no definite answer and no landfill in sight, but BBMP is sort of clearing the garbage by dumping it in multiple locations. You would find small heaps within different corners of the same area and not the huge heap you would see normally. This reporter visited various locations in West Bengaluru and the small heaps with some big ones were there for all to see. The "new" method of disposal gives you the impression that garbage collection for landfill disposal is on. But with no landfill ready to take Bengaluru's garbage, what other mode of disposal is available for BBMP? Small heaps seem the best way out. The area near Gali Anjaneya Temple (on Mysore Road close to the main signal junction where the road to Vijayanagar branches off) has remained the same despite the construction of a flyover connecting Vijayanagar to Mysore Road. No one is clear why ...

The muck stops everywhere 16.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Mini landfills have sprung up in residential neighbourhoods across the City, even as BBMP struggles to find a way out of the impending garbage crisis that could erupt once the Mandur landfill closes. Brinkmanship, it is yet again for the BBMP. With Mandur residents defiantly resisting any attempt to dump anymore garbage in their backyard beyond December 1, the Palike is caught in a deadly bind. For Bangaloreans, the spectre of another round of random dumping couldn't have got closer! Stinking stockpiles of muck had mushroomed across Bengaluru when the city's waste management system completely collapsed the last time. Vacant sites, open grounds and even Freedom Park were not spared. All these could dramatically return to haunt us all. In just a few days! But random, illegal dumpyards are already here, remind citizens from across the city. Unoccupied plots are being targeted both by garbage contractors and residents to indiscriminately pile up unsegregated garbage. Concerned citizens have repeatedly put up ...

Palike opens 'illegal' dumping yard at Kogilu 11.11.2014 deccanherald.com
Even as the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike is about to stop dumping garbage at Mandur landfill from December 1, it has found an illegal dumping yard at an abandoned quarry in Kogilu Layout, off Yelahanka. Trucks transporting garbage to Mandur are being reportedly diverted to the quarry site. According to the residents of Kogilu Bande in Kogilu Layout, the Palike has been dumping garbage on the 60-acre Bande area for the past one month. "The Bande is a government land wherein stone quarrying has been carried out. The quarrying stopped a year ago and half of the 80-foot deep Bande is now filled with water. The Palike has been dumping garbage on water. This has led to leachate formation and foul smell in the area," said Muniraju L, a resident of Agrahara Layout, located close-by. The residents maintained that about 50 trucks dump garbage daily, after 11.30 pm. The new landfill has been affecting the residents of Kogilu Layout and surrounding areas such as Kattigehalli, Agrahara Layout and Srinivasapura, ...
