Volunteer to make segregation at source happen at Konanakunte ward

We invite volunteers to join us in making 100% segregation happen at source by empowering the garbage collectors in Konanakunte, ward no. 195.

What you have to do

You will begin by shadowing an existing team who is making segregation happen. After that, we will connect you to a garbage collector with whom you will work closely on making segregation happen in the locality alloted to him.

As the garbage collector goes from door to door, you will be accompanying him in informing residents on how to segregate and making sure that only segregated waste is collected. In general, wet waste is picked up on weekdays, and dry waste is picked up on Sundays, to avoid mixing of segregated waste. It will be preferred if you have a two wheeler since you will be following the garbage auto across streets. Feel free to bring a friend along.

Timings: 7 am to 10 am every day, for a minimum of 1 week

Location: In and around Chunchaghatta main road, and J.P.Nagar 7th phase main road

Contact: Sinu – 9342578862 or Bhaskar – 9986208338

Watch the below video to get an idea of what the work will involve.

Introduced to lakes by Ramesh Sivaram (Visit to Kaikondanahalli lake), our journey began very recently, with baby steps taking us from one lake to another, trying to understand what ails our lakes and what can be done about it. This writeup is an attempt to document our learning and…

Why the garbage crisis has no end

One week. One well-planned week is all it will take to make an entire locality having around 1000 households to start segregation. So if we had just about 10 interested people in each ward, we could get the whole of Bangalore to segregate at source in just one week. I mean it. This begs the question – Why on earth is it not happening? It is after all not so difficult to get 10 people in each ward to get this going, right? Ah, that’s where we are completely missing the point; the garbage crisis here has nothing to do…
