BANGALORE: The Deputy Conservator of Forests, Bannerghatta National Park (BNP), has requested the officials concerned to shift the garbage dump yard close to the National Park, to some other place.

According to an official release, BNP’s Deputy Conservator of Forests Vana Shri Vipin Singh found that the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) trucks, passing through Kalkere SF of Bannerghatta National Park, dump garbage near the Bannerghatta National Park.

Although the dumping ground is located outside Bannerghatta National Park (about 50 mts from the boundary), it has begun to damage the wildlife and their natural habitat. The site is an open area and BBMP takes no care to avoid further damage in the adjoining areas, including the BNP.

“Moreover, all the BBMP trucks carrying garbage pass through the road running through the BNP,” the release said. BBMP officials were not available for comments.
