    My Apartment in Whitefield has 142 flats. For the last 10 years, we have kept 2 dustbins of 3ft each for Dry and Wet. We achieved 80% success in segregating the waste and families also got used to segregating at source. But recently, the association removed the dustbins and asked all the residents to keep their segregated trash in front of their flat which subsequently get picked up by the house keep staff. Unfortunately, this decision is generating minimum of 300+ polythene bags every day. Hope the apartments work towards reducing the usage of polythene bags and help BBMP.

Despite their significant role in environmental protection, the public is mostly unaware of the functions of these regulatory bodies, due to insufficient research. Therefore, we at Citizen consumer & civic Action Group (CAG) have attempted to understand the functions of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB), through a study titled ‘The Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board in Retrospect: An Examination of Selected Parameters from 2017 to 2022.’ Read more: Fisherfolk lament as environmental…
