Dump it, shut it, forget it

The lane composting unit can accommodate 25 kg of waste per day from
70 houses on the 10th Cross and 11th Cross of Rajendra Nagar

Community composting begins at 10th Cross, Rajendra Nagar to turn wet waste from homes into compost.

Until recently, 10th Cross Road of Rajendra Nagar at Adugodi ward in BTM Layout Assembly segment was one large black hole with garbage strewn around.

But now it’s likely to become a model lane, thanks to the efforts of Saahas, a non-profit organization, which has introduced the concept of lane composting.

From September 7, residents of this road, have been dumping their wet waste into a composting unit set up by Saahas, which has been helping communities manage their waste at source by reducing, reusing and recycling, since 2001. (BBMP) provided space for the unit. The purpose of this exercise is to collect wet waste and convert it into compost, while deterring people from throwing it on the road and reducing the burden on landfills. The wet waste will get converted into compost in 30 to 45 days.
