Lemongrass oil to stop smell from trash 14.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Its a common sight to see people covering their faces while passing by a garbage truck. Motorists speed up to escape the stench. In order to reduce the stench emanating from garbage trucks across the city, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) will spray lemongrass oil on them. "We will be spraying lemongrass oil on every truck. This will completely reduce the stench," said Sarfaraz Khan, Joint Commissioner, Health and Solid Waste Management, BBMP. "This is the only pleasant-smelling oil. We will spray about 15 ml on every garbage truck." Ten bottles of the oil will be enough to spray on all garbage trucks. The oil costs about Rs 1,000 per litre. Khan hoped there will be no pungent smell until the garbage trucks reach the waste-processing plants and landfill sites. Six out of the seven waste-processing plants are functional. Praneeth K Sargur, a regular commuter on Sarjapur Road, said: "Its interesting to know the BBMP is trying this new method to reduce the bad smell. We should see how ...

In what appears to be an effort ahead of Assembly polls, the state government has decided to speed up the process of creating buffer zones around municipal solid waste (MSW) sites.

The government is pushing the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) to work overtime to address the city's garbage problem and enforce the high court's recent orders. A senior BBMP official told DH that a committee had been formed and its members had also

Garbage dumps spoil the beauty of Roerich estate 12.4.2018 Deccan Herald - City
The dumping and burning of garbage in and around the famed Roerich and Devika Rani Roerich Estate in South Bengalurus Kanakapura Road have become an eyesore and an embarrassment to the authorities. At any given point in time, one can see piles of garbage and construction debris thrown around the 468-acre estate, built by Russian artist Svetoslav Roerich and his Indian wife and legendary Bollywood actor Devika Rani. Also called Tataguni Estate, it is home to many herbivores and carnivores, including leopards. It is also frequented by elephants and sloth bears. The estate draws many visitors, including Russian tourists. While the property is managed by the state-run Roerich and Devika Rani Roerich Estate Board, the area comes under the jurisdiction of the Agara gram panchayat. The garbage problem is clearly troubling everyone - locals, estate board and the gram panchayat. What makes the problem severe is that burnt trash could put the estate, which is essentially a curated forest, on fire. This is ...

Bellandur Lake wardens get more teeth, empowered to penalise polluters 4.4.2018 deccanherald.com
Rather than being helpless bystanders, Bellandur Lake wardens are given the power to take action against those polluting it further. A meeting of residents around the lake with Bangalore Development Authority Commissioner Rakesh Singh decided to empower the lake wardens to penalise those stealthily dumping garbage into the lakebed in the night and the encroachment, which the wardens have been powerless to control so far. Wardens can hitherto watch and report such violations to the government. Now, they will have challan slips to issue spot fines, said a member of Citizen Watch Group, Sonali Singh, who was at the meeting. At the meeting - the third with the commissioner on rejuvenation, apart from the NGT or expert committee meetings - over 30 citizens varyingly expressed appreciation, concern and anguish on improving the lake. Bellandur Lake, sprawling over 951 acres, has 12 lake wardens. "They are being given power to help serving marshals on duty. There will be no contradiction or change in the work of ...
