Institute of Public Health (IPH), in association with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Sarvagna Health Care Institute (www.shci.in), another non for profit trust, kick started a project to change KG Halli to address issue of waste management. Bengaluru Development Minister Shri K J George inaugurated this program.
During the launch, residents in a colony of economic weaker section at Kadugondanahalli (KG Halli) were provided with two separate bins and awareness material about wet and dry waste for each house and Urban health team members created awareness about the importance of segregation at source for these residents.
The process of waste collection from house till the disposal will be followed up closely and documented to understand the effectiveness of this initiative and to scale it up to other areas in a phased manner.
