Door to Door Garbage Collection Initiative

Well, there is nothing much to say with this new initiative of the BBMP. Chitra has already mentioned it here as well. Suffice to say its credible that the BBMP is slowly divesting itself from things that it cannot handle and offloads the same to private parties who, perhaps, can do a better job. If this scheme is extended to cover the whole city, boy, what a clean place we can all have, eh?

The only point to consider is if these private garbage collection agencies are also allowed to set up further links to the chain by having sorting / segregation centres, then waste collection, management & disposal will become an end to end process.

Currently, its not clear who does the final act of waste disposal. Are they just dumped into landfills? If yes, what a rotten shame.
