New Delhi. The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (South MCD) is doing a big job in the disposal of the garbage problem these days. During the last 6 months, SDMC has done a unique job of making 1 lakh kg organic compost fertilizer by executing 7 lakh kg of wet waste in just 2 wards. By making this manure, SDMC has got help in garbage disposal. At the same time, the amount of about 7,00,000 rupees spent in garbage loading has also been saved. According to the market, the price of this fertilizer is estimated to be around ₹ 25,00,000.
Let’s say that SDMC’s Ward no. 5 TDP capacity aerobic compost plants located in 5 Tagore Gardens and Ward No 9 Subhash Nagar were established. So far, Rs 1,00,000 has been spent on both these plants, while MCD has prepared about Rs 25,00,000 manure from these plants, and has also disposed of 7,00,000 kg of wet waste in 6 months at the lenderfill site Instead of leaving, settlement is done in the same area.
This compost manure was distributed to the Horticulture Department, Schools and RWA of Southern Corporation.
Today on Saturday, 10000 kg organic manure was given to the garden department from the compost plant of Tagore Garden and Subhash Nagar. So far it has been used in 156 parks and will be used in more parks. Deputy Commissioner Rahul Singh and Nodal Officer of Swachh Bharat Mission, Rajiv Jain and other senior officers of the corporation were present on the occasion.
On this occasion, Rajiv Jain, the Nodal Officer of Swachh Bharat Mission said that this is the lowest cost compost plant in Delhi. Here, a little soil and old manure is added to the waste litter to make organic manure and this compost is prepared in different modules like drum composters, lattice boxes of different sizes.
Nodal officer Jain said that it takes only three weeks to make manure. At present, segregation of wet and dry waste is being done separately in all the 29 wards of the western region.
Jain said that if the cost of organic manure is estimated at Rs 25 per kg, then its total cost comes to Rs 25 lakh whereas the cost of construction of the entire compost plant is only Rs 1 lakh. Which shows that it is an economical alternative to the execution of organic waste.
Deputy Commissioner Rahul Singh praised the project. Only by such plants will you be able to reduce the burden of landfill sites. In the last six months, we have reduced 7,00,000 kg of garbage from the landfill site. We have saved 7 lakh rupees for the transportation of garbage from homes to landfill sites.
This effort is environmentally friendly and is proving to be helpful in reducing garbage as well. He said that organic manure will also be distributed free of cost to the citizens so that they can be induced to separate the waste from the dry and wet waste.
