Secretary (Personnel) B P Sharma dedicated Compost Bins in the premises of the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) on 30th of June, 2017, on the concluding day of the Swachhta Pakhwada. Five numbers of compost bins (earthen pots) have been installed in DoPT canteen in the North Block premises.
The compost bins utilise the disposed organic vegetable waste/garbage of canteen kitchen and convert it into organic manure through decomposition process. The process of making manure is natural as well as economical and cost effective.
Speaking on the occasion Shri Sharma said the Department is exploring the possibility of utilisation of the kitchen based waste material on wider scale considering the large volume of organic waste output generated from the canteen.
He also dedicated 10 numbers of Blue and Green coloured dustbins due to be placed at various places in DoPT for the proper waste management.
