Towards a clean HSR Layout: Waste bins distributed

Green=Organic, Red=Inorganic

The HSR Layout residents and          their Corporator Latha Narasimhamurthy are going all out to make their layout clean and garbage-free. They had launched a campaign recently to create awareness about waste segregation in Agara Village and HSR Layout 4th Sector. The campaign emphasized the need for separating wet and dry kitchen wastes and putting them in two different bins (red and green) and handing them over to garbage collectors.

BBMP has already supplied 1,000 red bins and 1,000 green bins to ward No 174, each of which has a capacity to carry two to three kg of waste.  Most of the residents in Agara Village have received the bins and are using them, but the residents in Sector 4 say that they have received only about 50 bins.

RWA Meet at HSR Layout

HSR Layout Residents Association, 2nd Sector met for the Annual General Body Meeting for nearly three hours on June 6th at New Extension Cambridge Public School. The first part was a review of the activities of the association during the preceding year. The second part was the interaction of residents with the civic officials from BBMP, BDA, BWSSB, BMTC, and Police department. We had requested these organisations to depute senior officials and engineers to interact with residents and give suitable responses to the queries.

Unfortunately barring a few, civic agencies were represented by junior staff who showed helplessness in answering our queries. KPTCL and BESCOM representatives were absent; we were most disappointed. The local corporator Latha Narasimhamurthy was present through out the meeting.

Officebearers of the Association: The new President is R S Hiremath. and Vice -President Purushotham.  Channakeshava A is the Secretary. Brig Murthy will support the association as an advisor.
