Manufactued by Greenrich Grow India, a Chennai-based organisation, India, the green bin consist of fibre that composts organic waste generated in a household with the help of microbes.
The waste is converted into dry manure that can be extracted after 80 days, while the liquid content is routed to a tank below the bin, without mixing with the dry manure and producing any odour. Accrording to one of the board members of Green Environ (a non-profit organization), Pramod Mannadath, the collected liquid compost can be utilised as a pest control and even a toilet cleaner.
Those bins can hold waste for at least 80 days, and have a shelf life of up to 10 years. Green Environ, to pick up those wastes, offers solutions to those who have no use oh the waste-processed manure. Also, the fibre bins can decompose anything, from fruit waste to even chicken feathers and human hair.
»The problem with most of the previous waste management schemes is that they were subsidised and supported by local bodies. Once the support was gone, the project fell flat, M. Mannadath. »
He also stressed that waste management projects should be looked after in the same way that one would car for an electronic device at home.
