By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: BBMP need to operate a state of the art composting facility in partnership with University of Agricultural Science Bangalore , there really is no need for landfill sites to be topped up with green waste, when the waste can be so easily transformed into valuable compost. Recycling centers equipped to handle green waste collection :The efficient management of green waste demands up-to-date and intelligent recycling centers and composting facilities, BBMP is required to do research with University of Agricultural Science Bangalore which has more than 1200 acres of land in Bengalauru opposite Jakkuru Flying Club and can perfect its composting process and provide compost on regular basis to farmers in the region free of cost . In vessel composting facilities enhance green waste management: As the name suggests, in vessel composting facilities utilize large containers or vessels for handling the composting process. These specifically designed vessels are designed to compost bulk quantities of waste, enabling an efficient form of green waste management. As a result, this produces a high quality compost, which comes with the added benefit of being virtually odour free.
Let the director municipal administration at state review the garbage issue make permanent solutions by turning waste into resource at source itself at each ward and reduce the expenditure to bare minimum and make them usable by users . It is alleged that BBMP is breeding ground for in unlimited Garbage dumping and unlimited corruption in garbage dumping. BBMP need to use technology and provide transparent process which will reduce the corruption.Tech is changing and providing safe cities .It is time to make Bangalore city a smart city. BBMP should make whole Bangalore as smart city and it is not distant dream as Technology is available and at fast work in making urban living a smarter experience. Technology of course plays a big role and Internet of every things enable interconnections of smart city sub-elements like smart water management ,Smart mobility smart energy smart waste management smart health management etc. It is pertinent to note that for BBMP it is not possible to close one Mandur dumping location and create another Mandur for dumping garbage because no villager want to be dumping ground for un-treated waste. Planning authorities have totally neglected Waste collection and disposal process while developing the township and Layouts. Now BBMP is facing unprecedented problems. At least now BBMP make three collection pits in each ward and segregate at source andWaste need to beseparately collected and sorted at the place at each ward at which it is produced and from there it should go to nearby recycling units and wet Garbage need to be disposed after composting to nearby farm land and it should not go to any dumping site .University of agricultural science must be roped in composting the wet garbage at source at each ward and they can suggest farmers of nearby district to use this compost for increasing agricultural and Vegetable out puts to maximum at using minimum land and As a result, this produces a high quality compost, which comes with the added benefit of being virtually odour free..BBMP should transport this compost to nearby farmers free of cost. The problem is a big issuebut Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) can solve it with permanent solution..Siddramaiah Chief Minister should direct University of Agricultural Science Bangalore to provide scientific composting process and provide composting facility at its campus .You stop dumping at Mandur and find other dumping site and create another Mandur is not the solution to problem of solid waste management .BDA and BBMP and BMRDA and other planning authorities just went on urbanizing and expanding Bangalore and reduced the agriculture activities in the vicinity which was consuming the urban manure and solving the garbage problem naturally . Waste management is the "generation, prevention, characterization, monitoring, treatment, handling, reuse and residual disposition of solid wastes". There are various types of solid waste including municipal (residential, institutional, commercial), agricultural, and special (health care, household hazardous wastes, sewage sludge). The term usually relates to materials produced by human activity, and the process is generally undertaken to reduce their effect on health, the environment or aesthetics.
