Mangaluru, Aug 27: Citadel Developers installed community composting facility at their apartment project Woodville, Bondel. An awareness programme on composting was also organized here on Saturday August 27.

Daily Dump, which installed this facility, provides composting pots that can be used to convert organic waste into compost within the four walls of one’s home.

Siddharth, marketing and sales head of Daily Dump elaborated about the need of composting with the help of video presentation and said, “Urban homes generate an estimated amount of 60% of all organic wastes produced in India.”

“Daily Dump targets to manage this waste where it is generated – within one’s home. The company has come up with variety of products to handle the wet waste so that the pressure on the mother earth can be reduced and clean and healthy environment can be maintained.”

Products of Daily Dump:

Terracotta pots that can be used for composting are the main products of Daily Dump. They come in different versions that can be matched with the family’s size and the

volume of waste that is generated in one’s kitchen.

The pots convert waste into compost within two months without giving off any foul odour.

All one needs to do is dump wet waste and add remix powder to the pots at regular intervals and stir them. The volume of waste continues to reduce as compost is

generated. The compost formed can be used in the garden at one's home.

The facility launched at Citadel, Woodville is community composting which can process waste of about 30 families. It costs Rs 70,000 for a pair.

    Indeed a good initiative to promote awareness to minimize waste and recycle it.

    Big question mark here is that, the price. No organization gives anything free. In the above case price mentioned is Rupees 70,000

    Within city limit, Anthony Waste collects the waste and MCC is charging nearly 400plus amount against each door number (not each house). Since they already charge for waste collection and to avoid accumulation of waste in Vamanjoor dump yard, they can give this free of cost to farmers and those who are interested for home gardens. It does come free there also.
