On August 31, 2016, a theme-based lecture-cum-slide show was organised by Nature Club on ‘Solid Waste Management’. The speaker was Microbiologist Mr. Jayant Joshi.
Mr. Joshi discussed the various types of solid waste produced in Mumbai on a daily basis. He then went on to demonstrate an excellent method of organic waste disposal using specific low cost bacteria in plastic baskets, and which is easy to implement. He explained that the method is not only cost effective but also simple, and without any foul smell that is commonly generated in other methods of disposal. These baskets are highly cost-effective, very low-maintenance, and easy to use. They are available in different capacities and can be installed n our kitchens, restaurants, canteens and food points.
The lecture was attended by FY and SY students of Botany, Zoology Chemistry and Physics, their feedback was excellent.
