Green Communities Foundation follows the most hassle-free method i.e. aerobic composting. We recommend use of mild steel mesh cages that allows air passage. The following points capture our process:
- Segregated waste is collected from resident’s homes daily.
- The housekeeping staff weighs each category and records it in a register. (It is important to weigh waste, as it determines the quantity of microbial cocopeat that is added to the cage)
- The layering of wet waste, EM solution spray, old compost, cocopeat and dry leaves within cages. The best part is that GCF’s process requires NO CHURNING. Moreover, the EM solution keeps stench and pests at bay.
- Once a cage is full, you can let it sit and move on to filling the next cage. After about 25 days, the compost can be harvested from the trap door.
