DWCCs grappling with increase in non-recyclable garbage across Bengaluru
| Wednesday | 15th November, 2017
On an average, nearly 20 tonnes of segregated combustible fraction is collected at the 33 DWCCs a month.
“The major problem is caused by other materials that are now categorised as ‘segregated combustible fraction’.
Hasiru Dala, for instance, sends segregated combustible fraction to cement factories in Kalaburagi.
After DWCCs were set up, nearly 80% of the dry waste that is received comprises of these materials,” she said.
They eat into the little space available at the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike’s (BBMP) DWCCs.
