The Solid Waste Management Round Table (SWMRT) set up a mechanism to segregate garbage behind the City Corporation building on Friday.

Dr Meenakshi Bharath of the SWMRT said there were separate bins to dump plastic covers, bottles, papers, cups and the organic waste such as leaves, branches and leftovers.

Recyclable material will be sent directly to the recycling units while the organic waste will be converted into manure to be used for the Palike’s garden.

At the inauguration, BBMP Commissioner Siddaiah commended the SWMRT for its initiative on the garbage segregation which will be taken up across the City.

The Palike launched 14 additional vans for catching dogs. The two dog-catchers will utilise them while catching the dogs in the City, sterilise and vaccinate them before leaving the animals again at the same spot from where they were picked up.

With the arrival of new dog-catching squad, Palike would sterilise at least 70,000 dogs every year.

Despite the opposition by the traders on Avenue Road and Chikpet the Palike has decided to go ahead with its decision to collect tax to augment its revenue.

Siddaiah told the reporters that the tax collection drive will continue and none can be exempted from the taxes. To a query on the action against the officals for failing to collect taxes, Siddaiah said the focus now is on bringing the traders of Chikpet under the tax net.
