Townships In Indore Plan To Recycle Waste. How Will It Help?
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Clean India Project is certainly getting support from developers across the country. Among those who have joined the mission are some developers in Madhya Pradesh's Indore that have launched residential townships with organic waste converters.
These waste converters will help reuse hundreds of kilograms of biodegradable waste generated every day in each household. According to the waste management experts, the initiative will help developers use the treated garbage as fertilisers. Loosely estimated, a housing society generates an average of 400-500 kg of waste each day, out of which 60 per cent is organic waste.
Kapil Verma, deputy general manager, of one of the upcoming residential township at the Talawali Chanada area in Indore, says they have kept the provision of setting up an organic waste converter in the campus to treat the organic waste into manure and utilise it in the gardens.
A few townships of Indore have also agreed to set up the waste converter in collaboration with the Indore Municipal Corporation.
