Simple composting idea

Mr.Ananthakrishnan from Palghat informs that the Marutharode Panchayat adjoining Palghat town has an innovative idea to encourage households to compost their organic waste. The local administration provides free of charge to every household two PVC pipes with a cap at one end. The open end can be embedded in the soil. Composting is initiated by adding a mixture of cow dung, curd and jaggery  with the first charge. Once the first pipe is filled, the second pipe is used. By the time the second one is also full, the composting in the first may be complete. The manure is taken out by simply lifting the pipe.

Neat idea!
