'Constituency tops in segregating waste'

Agriculture Minister Krishna Byre Gowda on Saturday said Byatarayanapura tops in terms of segregating waste at source.

Addressing people during ‘Janaspandana – Citizens for Change’, Byre Gowda quoted Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu as saying that Bengaluru is the only metropolitan city where maximum segregation of waste is happening.

“In Bengaluru, our Assembly constituency stands on top. More than 50% of the waste generated here is segregated. We also top in producing raw material for organic compost from wet waste generated in our area,” said Byre Gowda.

He urged his electorate to help BBMP in achieving 100% waste segregation in his Assembly constituency.

“Segregated waste generates employment to many. Waste is wealth. Ragpickers earn from this. The compost generated from waste helps farmers grow produce organically,” the minister said.
