Organic waste is material that is biodegradable and comes from nature, either a plant or an animal. Organic waste is usually broken down by other organisms over time and may also be referred to as wet waste. Examples of organic waste include green waste, food waste, food-soiled paper, non-hazardous wood waste, green waste, and landscape and pruning waste.
Any non-biodegradable material like Paper, plastics, metal, glass, rubber, thermocol, Styrofoam, fabric, leather, rexine, etc.
Approximately, 10% to 30% of the organic waste input is converted to compost.
All types of biodegradable material including tender coconuts, watermelon shells, corn bases, nonveg bones, etc.
We should avoid the entry of non-biodegradable material. Polythene or plastic paper may get wrapped around the shredder blades, mixing arms and shafts. Hard metal parts may block the blades.
Scientifically, bones take years to decompose. Due to the inbuilt shredder, the bones are broken into small pieces increasing surface area but cannot be fully decomposed.
As it is a hard material, it takes a long time to decompose, so it cannot be decomposed in the machine within 10-12 days.
Dry Saw dust and Bacterial enzyme culture are the required consumables.
Dry garden waste can be used as an alternative to sawdust. But its required quantity may be more than the sawdust.
