Years of follow ups have not been able to help the KCDC plant in HSR Layout function scientifically, and residents are bearing the brunt. A residents welfare association has recently filed a writ petition in the High Court demanding the closure of the plant.
3000 tonnes of unsold compost is lying at KCDC as there are no buyers this year. The plan now is to shift city’s waste to outskirts via goods trains. More such interesting points, in the interview of Karnataka Compost Development Company Chairman Kenchegowda.
The city’s garbage woes did not appear overnight. What led to this tipping point? Citizen Matters looks back over the past 15 years and the current imbroglio in a new in-depth series. Is there an end in sight?
Problems of KCDC don’t seem to end. The processing of mixed garbage accumulated over the years is troubling the residents. MLA is asking the KCDC to shift, but the Commissioner says it is not possible.
