PMC to offer wet garbage for making fertiliser
Pune Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to provide wet garbage free of cost to farmers for using it as agricutlutral fertilisers. The statement issued by the civic administration mentions that garbage will be transported to the doorstep of the farmers staying within a 50-km radius. According to PMC officials, no transportation fees will be charged from these farmers. The fertiliser can also be used for organic farming.

Pune generates nearly 1,600 metric tonne of garbage everyday, out of which around 250 tonne is wet garbage. Processing the garbage is a big issue within the city due to non-availability of sites, and hence the city's garbage is sent to the processing plant at Phursungi-Uruli villages. A plant has also been set up at Ramtekdi. Also, of the total garbage generated in the city every day, around 15 percent is plastic.

Apart from this, there was a puppet show organised by the Warje Karvenagar ward office to create awareness about garbage segregation and nuisance of plastic bags. According to the ward office, the shows were organised for students and citizens of the Kothrud Gaothan and Dahanukar colony areas. Also, a short film on the good practices of solid waste management was screened during the programme.
