At times it is not possible to do composting at home due to space constraint or other reasons. Or some contribute at society level if that is more effective. Some housing societies have successfully reduced the wet waste going out of society in last few years. They did it either on their own or by using help of waste management companies.
These are few names I came across in Mumbai. Feel free to add more and expand this list so that others can benefit from the learning here:
|Kanchan Nalanda CHS Ltd||Malad||2016 onwards- biocompost pit in society managed by external agency and separate bins to household.|
|Vijay Nagar Housing Society||Andheri||2015 onwards- Separate dustbins for dry, wet and other waste, and six compost pits set up with wet and dry waste managed by NGO’s. Manure produced is retailed under Harit Vasundhara Brand.|
|Whispering Palms-6||Lokhandwala, Kandivali (E)||2018 onwards- automatic composting machine.|
|Matoshree Pearl||Mahim||2018 onwards- Bio composter used to facilitate the natural process of composting.|
|Malhar Co-operative Housing Society||Goregaon|
