Pune: A terrace garden made from wet waste at Sinhagad Regional Office of Pune Municipal Corporation jointly by Sai Janseva Pratishthan and Green Vision Management was inaugurated by State Minister for Higher and Technical Education and District Guardian Minister Chandrakant Patil.

A ‘Terrace Garden’ project has been created on the roof of the Sinhagad Regional Office for the easy disposal of wet waste and to benefit the citizens. In this project, 300 kg of wet waste is being processed in 100 buckets of 30 litres each day.

Fruit trees, flower trees and basil have also been planted in this garden. The wet waste can be decomposed in the bucket for up to a year and a half and the accumulated manure can be removed and replanted. 

Speaking on the occasion, Guardian Minister Chandrakant Patil said, “We are moving fast towards a clean India by eliminating waste in different ways. There is a need to increase the performance of Pune city in this competition. And a book should be distributed amongst people to inform them about how to compost wet and dry waste.”

The Guardian Minister also urged that such projects should be started on all the buildings of the Municipal Corporations and the people’s representatives should also take the initiative for such innovative activities. He expressed the belief that the initiative implemented by the Pune Municipal Corporation is commendable and through this, the citizens will also be encouraged to implement environment-friendly activities.
