Acme Elite is a relatively small society in Poonam Nagar, Mumbai. The society segregates its waste and composts about 634kgs on a monthly basis and so far they have prevented more than 2 tons of waste from entering landfills.
The waste management efforts were led by Ms. Sheela Karunakaran entirely. She has singlehandedly bought her entire society on board and has ensured that they are complying with segregation norms. To know more about her you can check her interview for here.
Acme Elite consists of approximately 30 flats and a vegetable shop outside their premises. They use 3 compost cages for composting. They do not have a formal housekeeping team and composting is done by their gardener.
The dry waste is being given to local recyclers through the housekeeping staff at the society.
