Palike pins hopes  on 4 projects to tackle trash mess

The BBMP has claimed that four projects coming up in Bangalore will help dispose of at least 2,200 tonnes of waste every day, which is almost 60 per cent of the total garbage generated in the City.

These projects have been given a go-ahead so as to resolve the waste crisis in Mandur, which receives almost 2,500 tonnes of waste per day.
*Noble Exchange at Kannahalli on Magadi Road is coming up with a wet waste processing unit on five acres of BBMP land.

The Palike had signed the agreement on October 10, 2013 and it should have completed its unit by June 2014. Due to protests, the project has not been completed yet. The Palike expects the unit to start soon.
