Bengaluru will be the first Indian city to manage waste scientifically, by enforcing three-way segregation. The cities suffering from air pollution can take a cue from Bengaluru now.
Divide your trash, to conquer it. Segregate your garbage it into three categories, to make life easy for everyone! Put in simple terms, this is what the High Court of Karnataka ordered in the hearing of the Public Interest Litigation on garbage problem in the city, on December 17, 2015.
Two bins and one bag, brought to the High Court of Karnataka by solid waste management activist Sandya Narayan captured the attention of the judges, who agreed with the way they can be used effectively to solve the problem of managing waste in the city. In the interim order, the bench headed by Justice N Kumar and B V Nagarathna ordered for mandatory segregation of waste at source, by implementing the three-way segregation that makes use of 2 bin – 1 bag system. The court said it was the first step towards addressing the solid waste management issue plaguing Bengaluru city.
“We are not yet finished with the case. More orders will be given in future. But, let us first implement waste segregation at source,” the bench said. The order has come at a time when BBMP is reeling under garbage crisis.
