BDA trims estimate of city's trash generation

Bengaluru: Feb 19, 2017, DHNS: 1:19 IST
The Bangalore Development Authority has scaled down the amount of garbage it estimates to be generated in the city per day by 2031.

The pre-draft of Master Plan 2031 states that Bengaluru will generate 13,208 tonnes of garbage per day, significantly lower than the earlier estimate of 18,000 tonnes.

Addressing an interactive meeting organised by the Indian Institute of Architects on Saturday, BDA Commissioner Rajkumar Khatri said the estimate was revised following consultation with BBMP.

The pre-draft estimates that Bengaluru will need 50 tmcft water. Khatri said that if the vehicular population continued to grow at the present rate, Bengaluru’s commuting problems would only worsen.

The draft of the master plan is likely to be published by the end of this year and people will have two months to file objections, if any, he added.
