The health inspector of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) in Bengaluru South division has collected about Rs 5000 with the help of marshals and night guards keeping vigil and preventing people from dumping garbage on a probable lake bed on Kanakapura Main Road.

Located opposite H M Tambourine, an apartment complex, the spot was a major headache for residents for many years as garbage was regularly dumped there. After several attempts to clean up a patch of the lake bed, the residents collected funds up to Rs 1.25 lakh and erected barricades and painted the area to prevent the dumping of waste.

On October 28 the residents invited an NGO- 'Way for Life' to help them barricade the place and paint along with some music and songs. The patch of land where people used to cover their nose and walk was freed of the bad odour since Sunday.

Aleem, a resident of the apartment complex, said that the credit must go to the BBMP staff who are helping in keeping the place clean. “It is not easy to keep vigil at night only to prevent people from dumping garbage. Besides guarding the place, the BBMP health inspector has also fined many persons who dump the garbage,” he added.

Mahesh, the health inspector, said that he has taken up the task of cleaning the place and preventing all probable black spots in his area of work. “We have fined many educated people who come in the night to dump garbage, I have not spared anyone and ensured the fine amount is collected. I have also asked many of these defaulters to send their photo the next day when they are handing over their garbage to our vehicle,” he added.
