The Nabadiganta Industrial Township Authority (NDITA) will hold workshops to encourage and guide IT and other companies in Sector V to come up with decorative and smart composting machines that would fit into office décor.
“The composting machine could look like a washing machine where bio-degradable or wet waste could be thrown for a few days until it turns into good compost for office garden and other usage,” an official said.
As for recycling of non-bio degredable or dry waste like old clothes, authorities will call in cement, potato or rice bag manufacturers to hold workshops for coming up with a recycling market for discarded garments.
Earlier last month, NDITA had organised a workshop with representatives of Sector V companies on how to segregation waste at source. Officials said that presently around 25 to 30 tonne of waste is generated daily in Sector V.
According to the Solid Waste Management Rules 2016 released on April 2016, all resident welfare, market associations and other institutions with more than 5,000 sq m area of space should ensure segregation of waste at source and facilitate collection of segregated waste in separate streams in partnership with the local body.
