The Bangalore civic administration has promised to rid the city from thousands of tonnes of overflowing garbage by Monday but doubts persist as its hunt for land to dump it has not made much headway.

Bangalore generates around 5,000 tonnes of garbage daily, and there is little space left in the Mandur landfill area to receive it. Hitherto it was being dumped in two other landfills, besides Mandur.

Of the two, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board has ordered closure of one at Mavallipura, the biggest of the three landfills spread over 48 acres. The other one nearby is known as Terra Firma landfill as it managed by that firm.

Bangalore Mayor D. Venkatesh Murthy said the civic body – Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) or Greater Bangalore City Corporation – will remove the accumulated garbage to Mandur.

The residents around Mandur, about 45 km north of Bangalore, have agreed to do so only for one month on several conditions which Shettar has agreed.
