Segregation and composting’ are not an option but a responsibility for every citizen and Government, asserted Madhuri Varshney, an environmental activist and social worker in Dwarka.  Talking on the 4th monthly Lecture in its 24 Environmental lecture series organised by Green Circle, she introduced a 2 Bin and One bag method wherein red bin will be used for dry waste while green bin will be used for wet waste. Simultaneously households must maintain a bag for recyclable items. She suggested sending recyclable waste to ragpickers. Further delivering her lecture with a power point presentation on Segregation and Composting, Mrs. Madhuri of Rise Foundation said that end-to-end segregation must be ensured to manage garbage effectively. She added that it is not only the duty of Government, but every RWA, Society must ensure segregation at source. Dwelling on the lacuna in the system, she said garbage dumps are overflowing and is posing a severe threat to environment as well as people’s health.

She also dealt in detail about the composting methods such as aerobic and anaerobic and vermin-composting methods to address the ever-growing organic waste. She also talked on community composting and explained how each society could successfully enforce composting to dispose horticulture waste.

Several residents of Dwarka are no longer dependent on their garbage vendor. While some have been doing waste composting in their homes for a year now, many others have taken up this initiative in the course of the past one month. Educating neighbours on this subject has also become a passion for this enterprising bunch of environment enthusiasts, social workers and housewives.

City Spidey recently caught up with a few of them. Madhuri Varshney, a social worker and environment enthusiast who utilises her compost in her kitchen garden, says, “I want the entire society to become waste-free and all the wet waste to be converted into compost in people’s homes. You can see the pits that I have made using two plastic buckets. This initiative entails very little money. Composting is actually just a habit that translates to a waste-free home”.

Varshney is always seeking innovations in composting and has been practising the aerobic and anaerobic methods. Varshney’s success at composting went on to inspire one of her friends, VK Priya, a resident of Ekta Apartments. Priya, too, shared her story with City Spidey. “I experimented with a mixer grinder. I started using it to crush waste and found it very effective. This technique also reduces the composting time. I am learning something new every day and happy that I am contributing to environment conservation,” she shares.
