Cleaning up PNLIT vicinity
Today (20-Nov-2010) the first step was taken in trying to clean up our immediate surroundings in whatever small way we can.
There is a spot on Puttenahalli Road, in front of BM Mayflower Block entrance which has been used for dumping.
20-Nov-2010 Before clean up
Assisted by the cobbler Chakravarthy who has a shop behind the dump (and who was responsible for some of the dump in the first place) and a few others, the spot was cleaned up this morning. The rubbish was enough to fill a large sack which was willingly carried away by the garbage truck... to Anjanapura dumping ground :-(. Sidewalk stones that were removed by the BBMP and left on a nearby footpath were placed appropriately and excavated mud from nearby was used to fill the crater. The exercise cost nothing but some dedicated time.
20-Nov-2010 After clean up
Chakravarthy has taken the responsibility of ensuring nothing is dumped henceforth. Some policing is required from residents of the area, BM in particular.
