You might be dumping your garbage regularly in the dustbin allotted by your apartment or colony. In India, local governments send trash trucks or similar vehicles for collecting garbage regularly.
The usual practice is to separate the organic waste from the inorganic one. It means that plastic, metal, fiber and other kinds of litter that do not decompose easily need to be separated from the remains of fruits, vegetables, food and other items that are decomposable.
However, do you know that organic waste materials can be converted into compost that can be utilized for your garden and plants? Compost is organic matter that can be added as a fertilizer to flowering plants, trees and veggies.
You can dig a hole big enough to accommodate your regular garbage and make it a point to throw only organic waste into it. However, it is better to use a DIY compost bin that enables you to move, churn and provide enough space and air to the compost pile.
Plastic, metal, fabrics or any other material that will not decompose will hinder the compost-making procedure. Therefore, avoid adding these to your compost pile. Once you have accumulated enough garbage in it, cover it with dry leaves, soil, etc. Bacteria, fungi, microbes and other microorganisms will speed up the process of decomposition, and you may get high-quality compost within a few months.
