To convert this waste, the G/ N ward has started a new compost centre near Mahim Chowpatty, which requires more manpower and has a capacity to convert around two metric tonnes biodegradable waste.
Speaking about the new centre, G/ N assistant commissioner, Ramakant Biradar, said, “Since there is a lot of biodegradable waste generated in this ward, we thought to initiate another centre. The new center has the capacity of two metric tonnes. Since the new one doesn’t use the technique that requires electricity, it will take a little more time to generate the compost. The compost generated out of nirmalya offering will be sufficient for three months of gardening activity in our ward.”
Adding more information, G/ N SWM supervisor, Tanaji Ghag, said, “We have used liquid and solid chemical to reduce the stench of compost during the process. We will be promoting this small pilot project to generate awareness in housing societies.”
