Once in a while an effort is made but there's too much burning that releases a lot of pollution. BBMP is not the sole cause for the problem. residents of Bangalore are, I saw a bunch of people in an I-10 recently toss garbage along the roadside.
garbage is strewn on roads where the residents are absent or do not object. obviously house to house collection and conveying to bulk transport there is mismatch. so the collector dumps on the road whenever the subsequent collection vehicle ( which is also a ramshackle vehicle with garbage hanging out of the vehicle) is not available. garbage collection is the simplest possible task and the way it is done here we should be ashamed to call ourselves technically advanced. I guess the garbage contractor and the corporators have a nice understanding so the inefficient method prevail.

BANGALORE MUNICIPAL CORPORATION HAS RECENTLY ELECTED THEIR MAYOR. THEY HAVE TO GO ON FOREIGN TRIP TO STUDY GARBAGE MANAGEMENT. THEN ONLY THEY WILL ACT ON IT. WE SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF OURSELVES FOR CALLING THEM OUR LEADERS
Bbmp Sweepers come at their whim and fancy. They do not collect any garbage lying on the roads for days on end. I am not even sure about their job profile because they do not comply to our requests at all. Besides, the 1st cross road of p and t colony rt nagar is full of potholes due to the plying of huge garbage collection lorries that come for the umpteen eateries facing the main road. 1st cross is used for all their loading and unloading jobs at all points of time during the day and night caring a damn for the residents of this street. All the other roads are tarred periodically without fail while our road is perpetually abused but never maintained. We do not know whom to turn to for help. The manholes draining these eateries face our houses and these get frequently clogged emitting foul smell and spillage of drain water onto the road. I wish the authorities did something about this before it blows up into a health issue
Our area is JP Nagar 8th phase Brookes Haven layout. The garbage collection doesn't happen regularly only during starting of the month 2-3 days they come continuously to collect money from each house. Later in the month they come either 3days or depending on their mood. We need to call them & follow to collect the garbage. Another major problem is they do garbage sorting in front of our layout & dump full vehicle load of garbage there itself but after complaining to health inspector they stop for few days & again they start it. Street cleaning is never done in our area though it comes in BBMP limits. Garbage collection & sorting & disposing it is very pathetic in Bangalore
