Nothing goes waste here, Vasant Vihar takes care - The Times of India

In what could be seen as a unique community initiative, residents of Vasant Vihar have taken it upon themselves to manage the waste generated by the colony. Instead of banking on the civic body to clear the garbage, the RWA has created a composting facility in its three-acre Shaheed Rajguru Park to turn the wet waste into manure.

South Corporation standing committee chairman and area councillor Radhey Shyam Sharma recently inaugurated the "Community Composting Station". He was so impressed by it that he has decided to replicate the model in 6,400 parks under the corporation's jurisdiction.

A South Corporation spokesperson said, "We do have composting pits at various locations but now we are going to take this up on a pilot basis around 10 parks in each zone." The park in Vasant Vihar is a zero-waste park that even composts dry leaves and twigs into leaf mould. The manure produced from the composting station is used for nurturing the plants in the park.
