Bangalore: BBMP plans huge city garbage collection infrastructure

The Bruhat Bengaluru MahanagaraPalike (BBMP) is planning a major overhaul of the city's garbage collection infrastructure. In place of the former practise of delegating waste management to many contractors, the BBMP plans to assign responsibility for the disposal of wet, dry, and sanitary waste in its wards to a single agency.

The local body's three-year contract with several organisations has come to an end.

The mayor told the media that in all 198 wards, they have organised to lease the garbage disposal independently by soliciting bidders.

To ensure that no vested interests are permitted, a separate committee has been formed to compile tender papers. Officials from the BBMP are not participating.

According to a BBMP official, Chief Minister BasavarajaBommai who would accept the proposal shortly, the group is made up of waste management partners and garbage disposal professionals. The preparation of procurement paperwork is nearly complete.

An official said that their projection that the problem of mixed waste could be solved by assigning responsibility for the disposal of wet and dry trash to various entities was incorrect.

Moreover, in several wards, trash dumping (black spot) is still practised.

Even if waste disposal in any ward was inadequate, the relevant agency could not be held liable. The wet and dry garbage collectors were always blaming one another for bad management.

Meanwhile, there have been complaints regarding the city's garbage disposal system.

Wet and dry trash, animal waste, sanitary waste, construction waste, medical waste, industrial waste, and e-waste are all types of garbage created in the city.

The BBMP has a system in place to collect wet, dry, and sanitary waste from residents. Animal waste and construction debris will be disposed of by a different agency.

Industrial garbage, e-waste, and medical waste are collected and disposed of by the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB).
