There are two ways to look at the landfill crisis in Bangalore (or any other city for that matter). Deal with it in the most sustainable manner possible (within the available means) at a personal level. Or, join in the chorus of the multitude which does not want to participate in this change but is ready to pursue erratic paths to pointless ends.
My own community—Sobha Althea-Azalea located in Yelahanka—was a model that ToI celebrated as one of the 15 ideas to emulate in its 2014, August 15th edition. The community participated in this activity every day and did its best to ensure very little was sent out for landfilling mainly because it was hazardous, non-recyclable waste. This achievement was captured by the Bengaluru Needs You team led by Prof. Rajeev Gowda as a replicable solution to the garbage issue in a burgeoning Bangalore.
I hope you will watch this documentary and take up solid waste management in your own home/ community if you still haven’t, yet. If you need any help to set up a self-sustainable SWM model, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
