Hello, everyone! We’re back and delighted to share the latest developments about our recent meetup on 20 October 2023 with the BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) about the persistent garbage issues in Bangalore reported by concerned citizens. We’re
The meeting was a step towards addressing this long-standing issue, and we already see some positive outcomes.
Three of the cases we discussed were particularly critical, and we ensured that they were brought to the attention of the BBMP Chief Marshal.
This involved sharing detailed information and contact numbers related to these cases, enabling the authorities to take swift action.
The Cases submitted to BBMP
- Misty – Yelahanka Town: The residents of Yelahanka were committed to solving this persistent and major problem where the citizens were dumping garbage and burning even after repetitive requests not to do so.
- CB Pradip (Jhatkaa.org Volunteer): CB Pradip, an invaluable volunteer with Jhatkaa.org, was recognised for his commendable dedication to addressing garbage issues in the city. BBMP cleared this space.
He plans to create awareness sessions in the near future are in the pipeline.
- Swetha Raghavendra: Another dedicated volunteer, Swetha Raghavendra, was instrumental in highlighting garbage problems around the Bull Temple area and her contributions to the cause were duly acknowledged. With 2 awareness drives and engagement with local vendors, the temple authority had to take note of it and is planning to do a test during the upcoming month.
A hope of new beginning
During our discussion with the BBMP Chief Marshal, we conveyed the collective concerns of citizens and the urgency of addressing these issues.
The response was promising, assuring a follow-up with the relevant authorities in the respective areas. This commitment is a significant step toward resolving the problems at hand.
But our work doesn’t end here. We understand that simply reporting and addressing these issues is not enough. To ensure that these ‘blackspots’ don’t reappear, we’re also focusing on raising awareness among the community.
Educating residents about responsible waste disposal and maintaining cleanliness in our surroundings is crucial for a sustainable, garbage-free Bangalore.
This progress was only possible with the dedicated efforts of our passionate team of volunteers. We firmly believe that a dream team can make the best team, and we’re proud of the strides we’ve taken in making our city cleaner and greener.
In solidarity with Bangalore’s citizens, we continue our mission to tackle garbage problems and create a cleaner, more vibrant environment for all.
Your support and involvement have been instrumental in this journey, and we look forward to working together to make Bangalore a better place for everyone.
Stay tuned for more updates, and let’s keep working towards a cleaner, greener, and garbage-free Bangalore. Report Garbage today: https://clean-bengaluru.jhatkaa.org/reports
