KR Market's garbage is a mixed one 21.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Beyond the 4,000 tonnes of garbage (rotting vegetables, banana skins, lettuce waste, etc) that Bangalore generates daily, there is an estimated 1,200 kgs of meat waste that comes out every day. But the bulk of the two categories of waste get mixed up here, the meat and vegetable waste are dumped on each other creating an unbearable stench. At the popular K R Market, the meat waste generated on a daily basis is around 46-50 kgs. While it is said that waste is thrown into underground drains, people also say that merchants throw the waste at a designated spot just outside the market. Ramachandra, a trader conducting his business just opposite the spot, says: "Everyday, meat traders load waste into cardboard boxes or covers and throw it at the spot where the BBMP trucks pick it up at a designated time. Around 46 to 50 kgs meat waste is thrown at the spot. That waste gets mixed with other garbage. The stench can get unbearable." According to Ramachandra, sometimes the meat waste is also kept inside the market ...

Inconsistent waste disposal methods 21.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Meat waste disposal across the city does not follow a definite, uniform pattern. This inconsistency couldn't be more pronounced than in Kadirenahalli, where a large number of meat sellers do brisk business daily. Govinda Rao of Santosh Mutton Stall says: "We do not throw away the waste. There is a fixed point in the area, where a BBMP pick up vehicle comes every morning. We go there and give them all the waste from the shop, after which the disposal is left to them. We have been following this practice for the last five to six years." However, Ramanna from the chicken stall next to his has a different story to tell. "We don't really use any system to dispose any of the waste. The owner just dumps them in an open drain somewhere nearby," he says. Just a few metres away from these shops is Bismillah Fish and Chicken Centre. Ali, who owns the store, has adopted a different system. "Every morning, we have some people who come and collect the waste from our shops. They are some private contractors; I don't ...

Chicken down the drain 21.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Tonnes of meat waste generated by hundreds of unauthorised slaughterhouses in the city bypass the BBMP's already overstretched disposal mechanism. Dumped in open spaces and sewage drains, the decaying muck raises a deadly stink. Sunday, 6.30 am: Fresh from his three-km brisk walk, Sumit stepped into Shivajinagar's stately Russell Market for his weekend shopping with gusto. It was then the stink from the carcass stockpiles hit him, mercilessly overpowering his senses, throwing his morning plans totally out of gear. The city's pathetic non-vegetarian waste disposal system had scored, yet again! Packed in bags of every size and dumped in an open space next to the market, waste from chicken, mutton stalls and illegal slaughter spots in and around Shivajinagar form a putrid mountain of decay. Raising a stink that rivals Mandur, this decomposing muck traps the shopkeepers and customers alike, before a BBMP truck drives in. Already trapped in a garbage management system gone wayward, the Palike is apparently in ...
