NASHIK: The Nashik Municipal Corporation (NMC), in order to bring the city among top-five clean cities in the country, has decided to focus on home composting in big residential housing societies.

The civic body is planning to rope in non-government organisations (NGOs) for helping the housing societies in carrying out this activity.This will also help the NMC to reduce the burden in collection of garbage.

“The ranking of Nashik city among clean cities in the country under the Swachh Survekshan has improved a lot — from 67 in 2019 to 11 this year — among cities in the country with a population of over 10 lakh,” a senior official from NMC said.

The NMC has already geared up for the Swachh Survekshan 2021 and has already assigned tasks related to the exercise.

For the next cleanliness survey, major thrust has been given on treatment of solid waste and it is essential to have management and treatment of the solid waste at source.

Last year too, the NMC had implemented a home composting project in the city and composting of around one quintal of waste was carried out at some residential societies in the city. Currently, the NMC has appointed private contractors for collecting garbage across the city through collection vans.
