9-point programme to make K R Puram garbage-free area

Health officials to keep an eye on motorists throwing waste on streets

In a novel initiative by the local MLA Nandish Reddy and the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), Health Inspectors have been directed to keep an eye on motorists who throw garbage onto the streets in the constituency and then create awareness among them of their wrong doing.

The inspectors have been told to make a note of their vehicle number and locate their house. As part of the garbage-free exercise, the BBMP will then go to their homes and create awareness against throwing garbage on the roadside.

This apart, Reddy said an incentive programme will be initiated for each health inspector who will keep their wards clean. The BBMP, along with the local MLA, have taken the onus of transforming K R Puram into a model constituency in the City by initiating a garbage-free zone exercise.

Waste management

In a nine-point programme released by Reddy and the BBMP, K R Puram is set to have a 9 am-to-11 pm garbage clearance drive. The Palike intends to use one tipper truck with two people for garbage clearance on each road in K R Puram.

This apart the BBMP will be segregating the garbage from commercial establishments from the residential waste. The waste generated from the commercial establishments will be removed twice a day and from residential locations, thrice a day.

Towards the afternoon each day, the constituency will see garbage clearance from public spaces, Government educational institutions and crematoriums etc. The BBMP will clean even the vacant private sites after which they will tax the owners.
