Garbage mounds draw birds, pose threat to aircraft

Bengaluru:  The garbage menace hasn't spared even the Indian Air Force (IAF) station in Yelahanka. Heaps of waste at Mavallipura, a landfill in disuse, and Razakpalya around the station are drawing birds in droves and causing threat to aircraft, officials said.

"We ensure the station and areas in the periphery are clean but garbage accumulating in Mavallipura and Razakpalya, which also has catfish farms, is a matter of concern. We urge Bengalureans to handle their garbage well," Group Captain Amit Pushkar, the station's chief operating officer (in-charge of flying), said on Wednesday.
