Biodegradable waste and


Remains of plants and animals make up 35% - 40% of solid waste.

This big amount of waste can be made reusable by the most natural way of recycling – separation.

In separation bacterias and mushrooms seperate organic waste in useful and quality land usually known as humus.

Biodegradable waste and


That land is great for growing flowers and vegetables.

This way is clean, inexpensive and significantly reduces the amount of waste.

It also makes the use of chemical fertilizers, which are very dangerous, unnecessary.

Biodegradable waste and


Way to make compost

If you have a backyard or place for digging, it is necessary to dig a hole whichwould be separated by bricks to prevent mixing of compost with the wastewather and the ground outside. Each time when you add organic products (food leftovers...)you need to cover it with a thin layer of leaves, then layer of earth for smell to dissapear. After 45 days you'll get humus. If youwant to make the process shorter, after rain you need to get earthworms in hole tonaturally seperate food.
