Solid Waste


Garbage is about recycling

It is time we accepted that each household and commercial establishment is a waste generator and so a potential polluter

Last fortnight, I discussed the need to reinvent garbage management in our cities so that we can process waste and not “landfill” it. This, as I wrote, required households and institutions to segregate their waste at source so that it could be managed as a resource. It also means that we need to limit how much is dumped by imposing a tax on landfill. I want to follow up on this idea this fortnight.

Solid waste composting

Treating solid waste

CSE started this practice to showcase successful decentralised management of the solid waste and also to reduce the discharge of the solid waste from its own campus. Solid waste composting is a process to prepare compost from the biodegradable organic material which can be used as soil conditioner or organic fertilizer.

Two types of wastes generated in the CSE: 

  1. From leftover cooked food (collected from canteen) 

  2. From uncooked raw vegetable waste ( also known as kitchen waste) and dry leaves
