This petition had 1,024 supporters

Bangalore Development authority(BDA) has handedover CA site streching over 9.15 acere to BBMP(Bangalore Bhruth Mahanagara palike) for setting up the solid waste dumping and processing unit. BBMP has now started setting up a Garbage Dumpyard at Banashankari 6th Stage, 5th Block near Lingadheeranahalli to fill the waste genterated from bangalore south.

If the landfill and garbage processing unit is allowed in this area we are bound to face following conseqences.

a. Groundwater will be contaminated in the Layout.
b. Exposure to hazardous waste can affect human health. In fact, direct exposure can lead to diseases. Many studies have been carried out in various parts of the world to establish a connection between health and hazardous waste.
c. Environment pollution around layout, children being more vulnerable to these environment pollutants. Fact is we have many prominent schools in this layout where students are coming from many parts of south Bangalore.
d. Biodiverstity will be effected. Proposed CA site is next to forest, there are many special animals and birds there. This move will defenetly affect them.
e. Cleanliness of layout will be lost; Smoke and foul smell from the dump yard will make the layout unhegnic. Rag pickers often set fire to the garbage to collect the remains of waste materials this will create bad smoke around layouts. Also small chunck of garbage will be dropped by the garbage trucks/tractors while moving over the speed breakers and patholes
f. Traffic problem can be expected because of frequent garbage moving Trucks and tractors.

This land is located in middle of 30,000 BDA sites and CA sites are ment to build parks, palyground, education institutes, government offices or any other public Utility service area. The BBMP has not taken the residents in to confidence. And We have seen what BBMP has done to Mavallipura and Mandur. We don't want this pristine BDA layout to be converted into Stinking landfill.  So request for CM sidaramaiaha to consider above points and stop work which is in progress currently.

Request  all to Sign this petition and forward this campaign to your friends.
