Participate in Survey of Municipal Solid Waste Management in Bangalore

Date: 5 May, 2014
Venue: Bangalore

 

Greetings!

In the past two years, many progressive changes have taken place in the way Bangalore manages its waste; changes that have influenced way waste is managed in the rest of Karnataka and even across India.

Bangalore is the first city in India where segregation of municipal waste at source has become mandatory. This is a direct outcome of directions issued by the Karnataka High Court responding to a batch of PILs, including ESG's, about the poor state of managing municipal solid waste and its consequent adverse impacts. The Court in its directions has emphasised that public involvement and decentralised efforts are critical for tackling the prevailing garbage crisis. More details about these efforts are at: http://tinyurl.com/l9osbdq

To help evaluate the extent to which the progressive directions of the High Court are being implemented, we request you to participate in this survey. It should take only about five minutes.

You can respond to the survey more than once in case you wish to assess quality of waste management in more than one location, i.e., home or office or school or corporate. Please note you have to enter a separate survey for each location.

For any clarifications, please write to Davis Thomas on <davis@esgindia.org> or at the numbers listed below.

Thank you for your cooperation and support.
