BANGALORE: Jayanagar residents have found better ways of garbage disposal. Dump the garbage at the spot, which has a board that reads “Do not throw garbage here”. Do not blame them. The culprit - lack of dumbins, that is making their life miserable. At present, residents here have no access to the door-to-door garbage collection scheme started by Bangalore City Corporation (BCC). Instead, they are used to “vacant spaces”.

Sri Lakshmi, a resident of Jayanagar III Block says, “Since there are no dustbins, we throw garbage behind the board as there is no other option. I hate doing this but that it is better than throwing it on the main road.”

She added that “during S.M. Krishna’s regime we had no problems as BCC workers collected garbage from the door step. But now this is not happening.”

Another resident, Jagadeesh says: “We throw garbage either after 11 in the night or early in the morning because of the board there. We will follow the instructions on the board, provided BCC places a few dustbins in our area”.

“A BCC lorry arrives at 7 am to collect garbage lying around the board. Instead, if they provide us with bins, the driver can collect it directly from there,” says Arti, a resident.
