A private dry waste recycling unit in collaboration with BBMP was inaugurated in Yelahanka on Thursday.
The city endures the burden of around 3,000 tonnes of waste every day. In an addition to that, festival seasons give it a spike of 35 per cent, according to BBMP. This year, to manage the festival waste in each ward, the civic authority, along with the residents' groups, decided to celebrate an eco-friendly Ugadi.
Yelahanka waited for five years for its dry waste processing centre to resurrect itself from bureaucratic apathy. Looks like it’s been well worth the wait.
No grandiose statements or placards. No chest-beating. No gaggle of mediapersons or TV cameras trying to devour glimpses of roadside spot clean-ups.
