The Wet Garbage at This Community Exchanged for Flowers and Vegetables!

Wet garbage can also be turned from waste to wealth! The residents at Hongxu Community of Xianxia Xincun Sub-district have used the organic fertilizer converted from wet garbage to irrigate the plants at the community, and also exchanged the fertilizer for various flowers and vegetables from farms, with the flowers then planted in the garden, thus forming a green ecological recycling chain. While the living environment is becoming more beautiful, the residents are more active in garbage classification.


At the eco-environmental garden of the Hongxu Community, the reporter saw a compost bin. According to the residents at the community, as long as the wet garbage is poured into the compost bin, with wood chips added and the lid closed tightly, the temperature will slowly rise to 70 ℃. Then, the wet garbage mixture will be automatically converted into organic fertilizer, and the liquid produced in the process of making fertilizer is the liquid fertilizer. One barrel of liquid fertilizer and 10 barrels of tap water can be mixed together to irrigate flowers and plants.


The residents at the community use these fertilizers to grow green plants and fruits and vegetables, which makes the living environment show the ecological beauty, and also gradually forms a green ecological recycling chain in the wet garbage treatment at the Hongxu Community.


In addition to self-sufficient watering of flowers and plants at the community, more than 100 kg of organic fertilizer will be left in the residential area every month. What can be done to improve the enthusiasm of the residents for garbage classification without wasting these fertilizers? The general Party branch of the Hongxu Community came up with a good idea that the community could send the organic fertilizer to the farms in Minhang District every month and the farms could give the flowers and vegetables they plant to the residents. The exchanges have brought real benefits and senses of gain and happiness to the residents.


Ms. Meng and a group of residents were planning to plant the flowers and plants obtained in the exchange at the eco-environmental garden. After the process of “making fertilizer”, “exchanging fertilizer for plants” and “planting the flowers” personally, the residents have a new understanding of the sustainable development of a livable environment. “I visit the eco-environmental garden every day now, taking a breath of fresh air and keeping myself in a good mood. The community environment is getting better and better, and everyone is very happy,” said Ms. Meng.
