Special ‘pit’ has been made to produce fertilizer. Where organic manure is being created by worms keeping the collected rubbish.

About six and a half lakh rupees are spent on this project. Currently a supervisor and two employees are involved in this work. The primary work of this project will start after the returns of trainees from Kalyani.
Project supervisor Shanti Gopal Mahapatra said that the garbage collection vehicle is reaching at different points of the area at certain times. After collecting garbage from there, the decomposable substances are being collected separately to a specific ‘pit’. After one to one and a half months, organic fertilizers are being produced in a certain way with the help of worm.
A block administration official said that the area of Raipur block area will soon be identified as pollution-free area due to the use of organic fertilizer production method from garbage.
