B`lore: Pile-up of tonnes of garbage all set to be
Bangalore: The pile-up of thousands of tonnes of garbage in the city are expected to be cleared by Monday, sources in the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (city corporation) said on Sunday.
The Mandur landfill on the city outskirts had been reopened for dumping from Friday night and BBMP officials have promised to clear the garbage in three days.
The residents in and around Mandur urged the Chief Minister to shift the landfill elsewhere within three months, during a meeting with him last Thursday and agreed to allow dumping there for a month.
Bangalore generates 4,000-5,000 tonnes of garbage daily.
Apart from Mandur, the garbage was being dumped in Mavallipura and Belamangala. The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board had recently ordered closure of the Mavallipura dump-yard, while the Mandur and Belamangala ones also had to be closed because of protests by villagers.
