The initiative of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to segregate dry and wet waste, and use uncooked wet waste for composting with help of self-groups has brought positive result. Not only new self-help groups are joining the initiative, existing groups are also seeking more space for composting.

"We are not composting as much as we can due to space crunch," she said. She said if a bigger space is given to them, they can ...
