  1. I am living in banglore..and i would love to understand the project..very much intrested in waste management and m planning to open my own waste mangement thing..but be4 that i need to understand the basics..i hope here people can guide me

  2. What are the reasons for this project not taking off? Labour? No financial support? Protest from residents?
    What can we do to solve these hurdles?
    Have we really made an effort to support the project by trying to get labour force through various NGO’s, Women’s self help groups around Bangalore?
    How else could the project have been funded other than from the RWA? Could the BBMP have been roped in to fund this project as a model for their Garbage Segregation Pilot project in various wards?
    Have the residents been educated or informed about this project? How could the residents been made to get involved in this important pilot project and how could they have been motivated to support this project?
    The more we go deep into the matter it appears that we give up too soon and we give up before trying our best and we give up before asking for help.
    This project is a tried and tested one and yes it may have to be customized to suit the Bangalore situation, but why are we giving up before putting in our best efforts?

  3. I have visited this place and was amazed to see the amount of effort Mr Srinivasan and his team from Vellore has put in to segregate the waste. The egg shell powder was ready for selling. There was a mount of leaf mulch into which I put my hand to feel the temperature inside – it was close to 60 deg with the bactierial action! All I saw in his video was working – alive in Dollars colony .. Sad to know this project is closed.. Would have remained a model for many associations in Bangalore.. Anyway we all now know Srini’s Vellore model is workable in Bangalore too – ofcourse we need to have all the components the cattle and chickens! Poor leadership at Dollar’s colony – sad for residents..

  4. the smell caused in the RMV colony was only because segregation was not done in a proper manner!
    if proper segregation was done then there the stench is bound to not be present! aproject like the one in RMV should continue!
    Kisd like us eco cops realise the importance of segregation.our future is at stake. we have to work towards a greener and cleaner evnironment and recycling is the first step.
    i think RMV should restart the project

  5. A statement like ” the pilot project is a very good model but may not suite the cities like Bangalore” by Dr Jagadish is nothing but a political statement. I wonder whether Dr Jagadish visiting some of the other areas like Dollar colony where this activity of segregation and composting is going for more than 2 years. Our Citizens forum members visiting the place a year back and it has taken place much before this big hype of segregation. BBMP supported this activity by giving a plot.

  6. There’s a difference between smell and STINK!! Also, please start segregating your kitchen waste properly. Otherwise there is bound to be a stink!!! Please don NOT demolish what facilities you’ve got. It’s a great opportunity!!! We kids realise the importance of segregation. It is OUR future that is at stake. Please restart the program, and strive to make a greener and cleaner planet!!
