The organic waste collected from project households of Nagarjun municipality is being taken to the compost plant of Nepsemyak for composting. The segregated organic waste collected from 1200 kitchens is taken to Chobhar on Tuesdays and Fridays. Our compost site visit was to monitor the effectiveness of the waste segregation at source project. The regular follow ups by our volunteers to the households segregating waste were to ensure only properly segregated organic waste (free of plastic waste) reaches the composting center. And we are pleased to see this happen.
Nepsemyak has extended its composting area using bamboo panels to accommodate the additional organic waste coming to their compost site. Their waste collection vehicle carries around 1 to 1.5 tons of organic waste per trip and it takes around 15-18 trips to fill in one bamboo box. Clean up Nepal in collaboration with Nepsemyak Sewa Pvt. Ltd has already diverted approx. 10 tons of organic waste being taken to the landfill site in Sisdol with the help of this project.
