Friends of Vrindavan is in the process of setting up an independent venture to provide Vrindavan with its own self-sufficient waste-recycling plant.
The technology will involve controlled conversion of city garbage into organic fertiliser through two stages - a biological process for decomposition of city garbage and a mechanical process for screening the decomposed matter. Up to 100 metric tonnes of garbage can be processed every day, resulting in the formation of high quality, soil enriching manure that has a premium commercial value and also the recovery of available residues of plastics, metal, glass, etc. that can be set aside for recycling and reprocessing.
The organic manure will be systematically distributed to farmers in the region, at subsidised prices, as a sustainable alternative to the expensive and environmentally harmful chemical fertilisers which many of them use now.
