The compost yard at Nakkavanipalem will be made a model in utilising wet garbage collected from house-holds.

During a visit to the yard on Wednesday, Municipal Commissioner M.V. Satyanarayana said it was planned to produce biogas from the waste and supply it to the nearby apartments on an experimental basis.

As a part of the plan to take up collection of garbage from two wards each and turning it into compost, it is expected that from one tonne of organic waste 200 kg of compost can be made.

As a part of the plan measures are afoot to acquire 15 push-cards for each ward and calling for expression of interest to run the manure plants were afoot, Mr. Satyanarayana said.

Plans were also chalked out to introduce 24X7 sanitation in the city, he said

Project consultant Suresh Bhandari, and Zone II Commissioner P. Durga Prasad were present.
