Civic Body Has To Identify Sites, Inform Centre
Bangalore: Here’s a fresh blow to the BBMP. The municipal body might soon have to face flak from the Centre. The ministry of environment and forests (MoEF) is all set to amend its existing rules to make it mandatory for all municipal bodies to identify sanitary landfill sites and inform the Centre about it.
Thereafter, they will have to dump their municipal waste at the identified landfill sites alone. “Throwing urban municipal waste wherever municipal bodies feel like will automatically come to a stop. This step is meant to encourage municipal bodies to follow a procedure and only dump garbage where they are allowed to,” Subba Rao, director, MoEF said on Monday.
