Friendly neighborhood landfill


This picture shows an empty site in the Frazer Town area. It’s an empty site with tonnes of debris and building refuse. Use the car in the picture as a reference to get an idea of how big the problem is. The height of the mound of debris is probably eight feet – maybe more.

How did this happen ?

Over the years, the site has been a very convenient dumping ground for excavated soil, building debris and just about anything that people want to get rid of. Including broken pots and wash basins.

A good example of what happens to a vacant site if the owner is not in town, or not in touch with the “work-in-progress”. If you’re looking for a dumping ground in Bangalore, you don’t have to look beyond your nose

    “….you don’t have to look beyond your nose”
    So true. Seen the dumping on the sites/road that connects Old Madras Road to NGEF Layout?

    The same goesd with Church Street, Murugeshpalya, near Airport Road.I have seen people dumping waste into drains when the authorities have provided space for dumping waste. The BMP have been regularly removing the waste in the morning. But still as soon as the truck leaves, people dump more fresh waste to the roadside so that by evening the whole place becomes full of garbage and bad smell. This place is best for a plague of Chikungunya outbreak.
