Agritech startup helps housing societies

New Delhi, Sep 29 (UNI) In a bid to promote wet waste processing, agritech start-up Kisanserv has organized a farmers’ meet in Manchar district of Maharashtra and distributed organic compost to around 200 farmers processed and donated by housing societies in Pune.
The meeting was part of its “Giving Back to Farm’s initiative” to join hands with large housing societies to help them in processing the wet waste and turn them into free organic compost for farmers.
Kisanserv has joined hands with third parties and large housing societies like Park Royale Housing Society in Pune to help them process wet waste into organic compost, the company said in a statement.
The company is buying fruits and vegetables from farmers directly and serving to its customers in urban India. It uses its reverse logistics to bring back compost from urban India to rural India and distribute the same to farmers free of cost.
Niranjan Sharma, CEO and Co-Founder, said: “The wet waste coming out of large housing societies in metros is a burden for urban India. Also, it is tough for societies and municipal corporations to single-handedly process it and make it useful.
“Similarly, farmers too are in need of organic waste at low or free of cost to enrich soil health and eco-friendly farming," he said.
The "initiative finds a perfect link between the challenges of urban and rural India with a common solution to benefit all", he said.
The Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation (PCMC) has said that it would not lift wet waste from as many as 700 residential societies that generate more than 100 kg waste.
Instead, the civic body has asked the societies to segregate wet and dry waste and convert wet waste into compost within their premises. The initiative helps such societies process the waste and municipal corporations who are struggling to dump yards for wet garbage by reducing waste.
