Managing smaller quantities of wet waste in multiple locations
Managing all generated wet waste together, in one location
|1. Type of Product||Typically Hot Pile Composting/Drum||Typically a pulverisor/biogas/pit|
|2. Context||Works best in residential spaces||Works best in corporates/institutions|
|3. Installation||System is modular, so can be installed in phases after trial||Needs upfront capital investment for the whole cost of equipment|
|4. Electricity||Does not need power to operate||Needs power to operate, shred and pulverise|
|5. Managing||Responsiblity of managing this rests with community champions||Responsbility of managing this rests with facilities|
|6. Collection||Collection is done door to door, block by block||Collection is done from pantry/canteen|
|7. Haulage||No haulage to a central point which requires time & effort||Haulage is not an issue, because of facilities|
|8. Maintenance||Protocol & system designed to collect for wet, dry, reject & sanitary waste has to be fool-proof for efforts to sustain over time||Collection protocol is easy to monitor and implement if there is a corporate directive.|
|9. Troubleshooting||If something goes wrong, it affects only that block & not the whole community. Problem is contained, until it can be resolved||If something goes wrong the whole volume of waste lies together in one place. This is more difficult to deal with and resolve.|
|10. Civil Work||Usually does not require civil work for installation||Usually requires a shed/roof/perimeter built|
|11. Perception||Encourages residents to be inspired, proud and enables understanding and participation composting||Usually out of sight and not accessible to employees - so there is no pride or knowledge that is transferred|
|12. Interaction||Children learn that waste is a resource, they can interact with the system||Children, even in schools often view this in a passive way, since the equipment is not designed to get kids to interact|
|13. Manpower||Does not require full time manpower, available staff and residents can manage easily||Usually needs a full time person to manage the system as margin for error is less|

PESKY FRUIT FLIES
These can be a real nuisance but they are not a health hazard. We have three tried methods of controlling them:
Here are some DIY methods ...
What does Remix powder do?
1. Absorbs moisture
Remix powder uses the absorption strength of cocopeat to soak up the liquid released during composting (leachate). That means no more gooey, sticky or smelly piles.
2. Makes composting stir & smell free
The powder is light and airy, creating plenty of gaps in the compost pile. This, along with the holes in the outer surface of Daily Dump composters, keep oxygen flowing - eliminating the need to stir and stopping stinky odours from forming.
3. Great source of carbon
Remix Powder has the right type of carbon for composting. It has ideal particulate size and surface area and so does not lead to air blocked masses forming. Its high lignin content adds to the nutrient value of the done compost and boosts root health.
4. Creates friable compost
Compost produced using Remix Powder reduces the amount of cocopeat you need to add in your final potting mixture. In fact, you can directly plant some species of seeds into your compost.
5. Helps you get it right the first time
The correct moisture content and enough oxygen are keys to no smell composting. Start with Remix powder and we can guarantee that you will soon be on your way to becoming a composting ustaad!
6. Speeds up composting
Remix powder contains a culture of cellulolytic and lignolytic microbes mixed with magnesium silicate. This is a natural and safe accelerator that speeds up composting.
The stand no mess is a great accessory that makes your composting corner neat and presentable. No more odd packets hanging around, everything in its place!
