Has waste disposal become a menace following the Vilappilsala issue? Are you searching for an easy way for domestic waste disposal?Â TechonparkToday invites your attention to the easiest and useful way of disposing waste.Â You donâ€™t have to invest much on this system.Â What you need is just two pipes.
TechnoparkToday team visited the house of retired government employee Mr. Raveendran Nair at Peroorkkada where the ring compost method has been successfully using for the past 3 years.
Two pipes, one-metre long and of 10-inch diameter, have been kept in the backyard, with a part of the pipe, about 1 foot, under the ground.Â Either PVC or cement pipe can be used. Â Dump any waste, except plastic and cloth, into this and keep a lid (anything to cover. Eg: a tile) over the ringâ€™s mouth.
Do not add water, but itâ€™s okay to dump curries or watery items. For a single family, one such pit would be enough to dump waste for two months. Â When it is full, use the second pipe. Â By the time it is full, the first would have turned into manure.Â This could be taken out for farming.
For the last 15 years, Ravindran Nair and his wife Chandrika have stopped buying vegetables from outside.Â Everything, from cauliflower, green gram, ladyâ€™s finger, brinjal, chilli, cabbage, amaranthus, â€˜puthinaâ€™ to snake gourd, have been cultivated from their terrace garden. The ring compost supplies manure for the purpose.
