All type eatable waste can be put in a compost bin, even non veg Waste and waste foods
Vegetable peels, curd waste milk waste, food waste, can keep seperate tray near the sink to collect all veg waste of a day…
It will be useful and less time consumption… at the end of the all veg waste can be put up ..
Egg shells have to be crushed with hand
NON veg waste takes extra time to decompose
Setting up compost bin
I am using Kamba, Which is three layered Clay (terracotta) Pot with a clay lid and for or a family of 3
The bottom layer is called as C pot and that is a closed pot on bottom..
Have to fill with 2 handful of cocopeat(We can order cocopeat even online now a days) 10 kg 60 Rs a Big sack can be used for 2 months..
Leave the C Pot as it is with 2 handfull of cocopeat..
Middle pot is called B pot, that have net type wholes on the bottom and cover the net of B pot with Newspaper
Top Pot is called as A Pot which we have to start filling
Cover the net area with news paper
Add 2 handful of coco peat
Add vegetable waste spread it then add coco peat 2 handful then spray water Then cover top layer with news paper and close lid.
Daily takeout news paper fill regularly..
Now once A pot is full take it and replace in B place..
Now fill B pot in same method..
Don’t forget to spray water daily.
After A pot and B pot are full.. now take the content of A and put it in C and spray water.. now A is empty..
Again if A is full.. Empty B pot into C and at the time C will decompose and become half so we add..
After everything is full Take C pot and put n a Waste bucket. Or leave out pot and cover with news Paper…

 Can be used as natural fertilizer for house plants or can donate to tree plantation drive team Ainthinai.. or can sell Rs 20 per kg
Now coming to segregating plastic waste
