HC permits BBMP to operate wet waste processing unit at Mandur.
The High Court of Karnataka recently permitted the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to operate a wet waste processing unit near Mandur landfill, after dumping of garbage is stopped from December 1.
A Division Bench comprising Justice N. Kumar and Justice B.V. Nagarathna said the unit at Mandur can process waste from Mahadevapura Assembly constituency and if possible waste from the adjoining areas as well.
The Bench, however, made it clear that there shall not be any dumping of waste at Mandur landfill from December 1 as promised by the Chief Minister. The Bench passed the order while hearing PIL petitions about the city’s garbage problem.
Pointing out that if waste cannot be dumped at Mandur then it cannot be dumped in any other part the city, and hence there is an urgent need to set up wet processing units across the city.
