Wet garbage woe plagues Thane residents 18.6.2018 DNA: Mumbai

They say that they can manage dry waste but do not have the wherewithal to set up expensive bio compost machinery. On June 17 over 35 big housing societies from Thane had a meeting to discuss ways and means to manage their own waste. This was after the TMC on June 15 gave them one more month to adopt the waste management system. "After a lot of discussions we zeroed in on the idea to segregate the wet and dry waste of our societies," says Siva Kumar Vunnava from Bramhand phase VI, Ghodbunder road. "We will manage dry waste, but TMC should take care of the wet waste. Putting up a wet waste plant requires around Rs 10 to Rs 12 lakh," he adds.
