Monumental Deepavali garbage


One of the biggest festivals of India, Deepavali has generated tonnes of garbage in the City and the BBMP is now finding it tough to clear them. The BBMP officials are yet to quantify extra garbage Deepavali has produced. But a rough estimate suggest that around 200 metric tonnes might have been produced.

Several garbage lifting trucks were engaged to clear the garbage from various parts of the City. On Monday, BBMP men were busy clearing Chikkpet, Avenue Road, Sultanpet and surrounding areas from where tonnes of the plantain leaves and other waste materials were disposed of.

Sources in the BBMP said on an average, the City produces around 3,000 metric tonnes of garbage but on Deepavali days it exceeds by around 200 to 250 metric tonnes. On Tuesday, when Deepavali festival would formally come to an end, an extensive drive would start to clean the City of the festival garbage, said BBMP sources.
