Nashik promotes home composting to manage wet waste

The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC) has decided to focus on home composting in big residential housing societies and is planning to rope in non-government organisations (NGOs) for helping the housing societies in carrying out this activity.

For the next cleanliness survey, major thrust has been given on treatment of solid waste and it is essential to have management and treatment of the solid waste at source, reports The Times of India.

Last year too, the NMC had implemented a home composting project in the city and composting of around one quintal of waste was carried out at some residential societies in the city. Currently, the NMC has appointed private contractors for collecting waste across the city through collection vans.
