Garage Disposal and Vermicomposting – Notes
Garbage In Garbage Out
A landfill is a large, low-lying area used for garbage disposal.
The useful components of garbage are fruits, vegetable waste, food remains, tea leaves, coffee grounds and paper.
The non – useful components of garbage are polythene bags, plastic and aluminium wrappers.
The government or the municipality provides two separate bins.
A green bin for useful components of garbage and blue one for non-useful components of garbage
The decaying and conversion of waste materials into manure is called composting.
Vermi composting is the process of preparing compost with the help of red worms.
Red worms live in places rich in organic matter – a combination of nitrogen- rich materials and carbon –rich materials, with plenty of moisture and microbes.
