The proposed project is to convert Municipal Solid Waste(MSW) into compost. The solid waste coming out from residential societies and municipality areas mostly consists of the
garbage from kitchen, kitchen gardens, leaves from roadside plants and trees, street garbage, sanitation
residue, many unusable household items, construction and demolition debris and it has more than 50%
organic fraction suitable to make compost, leaving a little part of the garbage to be carried and dumped in landfills. The idea is to adopt a process where the solid waste is suitably used to generate useful product and it is economically viable rather than simply building heaps of garbage in landfills and incinerating it. Under this project, three Rotary Drum Composter (RDC) plants would be set up in the city of Roorkee at different places so as to cover the entire city. The use of RDC in managing MSW is easy to operate, less time taking in making of compost and a definite
quantity of compost is produced daily. The sale of compost/manure will make the plant self-sustainable., RDC is easy to maintain and less power consuming.
