Survey on garbage management in Bangalore: Participate now!

Help Survey Efficiency of Garbage Management in Bangalore
 
In light of the massive solid waste (garbage) management crisis in Bengaluru last year, the High Court of Karnataka in response to Public Interest Litigations by Environment Support Group and various individuals, directed the City and State authorities to adopt various clean up measures. In simple terms, the directions involved instituting a public education campaign to ensure segregation of waste at source became mandatory, that biodegradable waste would be locally composted, recyclable waste recovered, and only inert waste sent to landfills. In addition, the whole process was decentralised and Ward Committees were instituted to help monitor the transition. Various deadlines have also been defined by the High Court and compliance is being closely monitored by the Division Bench consisting of Justice Mr. N. Kumar and Justice B V Nagarathna. The PDFs of the orders passed by the Hon’ble High Court can be viewed at the following link:
 
To assess the efficacy of compliance with the Hon’ble High Court directives, ESG has launched an online survey which takes 5 minutes to complete, and which will provide us with important information to submit to the Court.  We request you to kindly inform your readers of this survey which may be accessed at:
