This solid waste management unit built at `40 lakhs, collects organic waste, processes them and converts them into organic manure. Minister R Ashoka, inaugurated the unit on 19th January.

BBMP is distributing red and green coloured bins to around 1500 houses in Jayanagar. Residents are asked to put in their dry waste such as paper, glass and plastic into the red coloured basket and wet waste like remains of vegetables and fruits to the green coloured basket.

The dry waste would be collected twice every week, whereas the wet waste would be collected everyday.
