Message from the CEO
To segregate or not to segregate?

Waste when segregated is a resource but when not, there starts a vicious cycle of damage to both people and the environment. We all know the kind of garbage problems that Bangalore is grappling with. Bangalore generates about 4500 to 5000 tons of waste every day and about 90% of it goes to landfills. The impact on the people living around landfills is catastrophic with air, water and soil getting polluted irreversibly. One visit to the Bingipura landfill which is just at e-city’s backyard will give one a reality check on the extent of damage. All of us especially children are affected by toxic dioxins emitted when improperly disposed garbage is burnt in nearby areas.

All it takes is a quick check to see what is happening within our premises, put systems in place for responsible waste management, create awareness among employees which would ensure their participation and train the housekeeping staff to follow segregation. Follow-up would ensure processes are followed diligently. The ELCITA SWM team is always ready to help and is only a phone call away.

My appreciation to those who have implemented responsible waste management and my piece of advice to those who have not - It is not rocket science. All it needs is will. Make a choice— to be concerned about people’s lives or to be indifferent. To segregate or to not segregate?

e-citizen
I own a restaurant in Electronics City. My native is Karaikudi, Tamil Nadu. I am living in Electronics City for the past 10 years and I have seen how the Industrial Estate has improved over these years in terms of infrastructure and security.

I started my restaurant 2 years back and ever since I’ve earned a lot of regular customers. Before 7 years, to get raw materials for business purposes one has to go inside the city. Now, we can get everything we need in Electronics City itself. Also, bus connectivity has improved a lot considering what it was some 5 years back.

Traffic is also much less inside Electronics City compared to the traffic inside city. And it’s a great thing to have 24x7 CISF patrolling around the Industrial Estate.

*e-citizen is a series that portrays different facets of people working in Electronics City.

 
DID YOU KNOW?

The roads and pavements in Electronics City Industrial Area are cleaned daily between 6am and 3pm.
