Earthen pots to take care of wet waste

Mangaluru: On one hand, It is a big problem to take care of the daily accumulating wet waste in houses within city areas, while on the other, even though there is a rule from the corporation that all garbage being collected in the city must be segregated into wet and dry waste, nobody follows it properly. Ramakrishna Mission, which is already being spreading awareness on cleanliness in the city have now come forward to manage wet waste.

Dry waste can be kept at home for many days. But, it is impossible to keep wet waste at home for more than two days. Therefore, the members of the Mission have created a plan to maintain wet waste through the method of earthen pots compost. Initially, on an experimental basis, 1000 pots have been given to people from different areas and the future steps will be taken based on the feedback.

Production of compost from wet waste has been taking place from the past one year. It is the aim of Ramakrishna Mission to partially solve the problem of managing wet waste.

Compost from earthen pots?

Three earthen pots will be given. Two pots will be placed on top of the third pot at the bottom. The bottoms of the two pots must be closed with paper. Wet waste which is without water must be placed in the first pot on the top. It should be covered with either coconut fiber or with the given compost powder. When the top pot fills up, it can be transferred to the third pot at the bottom. And the second pot can be then raised to the top and be used to fill the wet waste.  In this way, Ramakrishna Mission has started the production of compost from the wet waste in the houses.

25 rupees for 1KG compost

This new scheme of the Mission to convert wet waste in the houses to compost is being tested for its merits and demerits at a few houses on experimental basis. The Mutt has already procured 1,000 pots from Mysuru on wholesale price and the compost produced from the wet waste can be used for the home garden. 1Kg of compost from wet waste costs 25 rupees. The Mutt is ready to collect compost in future at that price. By using such pots in all the houses, it will be an help for the potters as well, informs Swami Ekagamyananda of the Mutt.
