Bengaluru gets mini waste transfer station at Koramangala

A mini waste transfer station for storage of wet waste from households and commercial establishments was inaugurated last week in Bengaluru's Koramangala area. The new transfer station can accommodate up to 28 tons of wet waste daily. This is expected to improve waste management in the busy neighbourhood.

Karnataka Congress working president and BTM Layout MLA Ramalinga Reddy tweeted: "Inspected and formally inaugurated mini transfer station for transporting door-to-door collected wet waste - with a capacity of 25-28 tons daily".

Wet waste management has been a long-standing issue in Bengaluru. Most of the time, wet waste collected from households and commercial establishments is segregated at roadside transfer points, and this leads to overflowing of garbage and foul smells.

Explaining the benefits of the new waste transfer station, Ramalinga Reddy tweeted: "This facility will reduce street side black spots and avoid leachate spilling from compactors. It will also avoid manual handling and further escalates visual cleanliness of streets".

The residents seem to be hopeful about the new initiative. A Twitter user wrote, "Excellent initiative. Hope it works and extends to the whole of Bengaluru. We often see grandiose projects disappear after initial euphoria. Road sweeping machines, LED lighting, pothole filling machines are few examples".
