Installation of QR codes in the houses of Bengaluru will ensure proper garbage collection daily. 

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is planning to install QR codes in the houses of Bengaluru to keep an eye on garbage collection by contractors.


After running as a pilot project in Bengaluru, the project is all set to run in Bengaluru under the Smart City project. According to this, each house will get a QR code that will be fixed at the entrance. After collecting garbage, the collectors will scan it, and the data will directly go to the smart control room. Also, after scanning, the garbage collectors will report if the garbage from the house was mixed or segregated. The QR code will minimize the communication gap between households and the civic body. The households will be able to lodge their complaints related to Solid Waste Management (SWM) through the same code.

QR codes in the houses of Bengaluru is a necessity: Civic officials


The move by BBMP aims to reduce the problem of poor waste management in the city. The civil officials believe that this system will make sure that households are well served by garbage collectors. And, it will become easier for them to monitor whether garbage is being collected or not. The officials informed that the data of households giving mixed waste will be also be forwarded to marshalls for enforcement.

Under this project, the vehicles for garbage collection would also be equipped with GPS systems. This project has not included apartments because the garbage is not collected from individual households. However, civic officials are already working to develop such a system for better management.
