How to Calculate Waste Generated?

How To calculate Waste Generated at Society?

Every society person is thinking that how to calculate total amount of waste generated at individual or in Society?

calculate Waste Generated

We are only thinking about wet waste generated at your home or society.

Nobody knows how much waste generated at home or in family, but you can calculate Waste generated with individual person or individual family, some family have 4 members or some family have 6 members or some family have more or some family have less members, then question arises in mind that how to calculate waste is generated at at individual family or in society?

Generally wet waste can be calculated on average and and some waste can be consider in approximation.

wet waste we found any kind of waste if you are putting it for long period then water content from waste is create at bottom and it smelling badly. if you are daily dispose your waste in your way then it will be very good thing for you, so before treat your waste you should know about waste disposal or at lease you should know how much waste is with you that you have to treat?

if we taking one example for one flat, in a single flat there are living 4 members, then we consider minimum 400grams of waste daily. it is not sure  only that much of waste is generated but on an average waste can be calculated as per flats ( it may be 500g or 1kg )

First method to calculate waste generated,

you can calculate amount of waste is generated in liters and that generated waste you can multiply with garbage density you can get waste generated in gram or kilo gram

calculate Waste Generated

generally when you are collecting waste in buckets find out that litter capacity of that bucket when waste is full by bucket you can multiply garbage density with that liter capacity. for example, if bucket is 20lit capacity then you can use following formula

waste in gram= Garbage density x bucket capacity (in liter)

  • Density of  Garbage, household rubbish  g cm3 = 0.481 g/cm³
Density of garbage is varry as per garbage type or if you shredd garbage or waste then garbage density is less.

waste capacity in gram or Kilo- gram= 0.481 x 20liter

                                                            =962 gram

                                                            =900 g (Aprrox.) 

You can calculate amount of waste generated which is collected, on that basis you can find exact amount of waste generated .

second method to calculate waste generated in society is very simple.

It is very simple to calculate amount of awste generated in society or complex, simply consider per flats waste generated is 400g to 500g then it multiply no. of flats, 

calculate Waste Generated

for eg. in a single flat waste is generated 400 gram and there are 200 flats in society then  

waste generated in Society= Waste generated per flats x no. of flats.

                                            = 400g x 200


                                            =80kg of waste.

 so it  is easy to calculate  waste generated and it is first methods to dispose your waste to know waste generation calculation.

Waste Segregation at home: Segregate Waste Before reuse.

waste segregation

To make Compost waste segregation is to much important factor in waste management system, Indian Citizen are not serious about waste segregation. most of people are not segregated waste at home. so due to that reason now waste creating mountains, mountains are the symbol of beauty not waste.

so now Every people thinking that waste segregation is very critical and very bore job, but if you are doing it any proper way so you will know that how much it is easy work. Before doing segregation it is important to know what is dry waste and what is wet waste?

how to segregate waste and how to reuse or recycle waste.

Waste segregation” means dividing waste into dry and wet. Dry waste includes wood and related products, metals and glass. Wet waste typically refers to organic waste usually generated by eating establishments and are heavy in weight due to dampness.


Why segregation is important?

If you want to reuse or recycle your any type of waste then you can , but you can not play with mixed material. Mixed material is all type of waste including everything from organic waste to hazard and harmful waste.
There are different types of waste you can segregate, but main segregation of three types.
1. Wet waste.
2. Dry waste.
3. E- waste.

how to segregate waste and how to reuse or recycle waste.

You can use any three partician or three buckets to segregate these waste.

1. Wet waste-

waste segregation

Wet waste is very important in waste segregation , wet waste is difficult to segregate from dry waste, but you start to collect or creates wet waste only. Then your work would be easy and you can reuse your wet waste to make compost or generate energy or gas.

What type of waste is wet waste- 

Fruits&peels, vegetables & Peels poultry & fish, Egg & crab shells, bakery food, chicken & meat, fast food, meal leftover, garden waste etc.

2. Dry waste-

waste segregation
dry waste has some value because it can be reuse and recycle with easy way, dry waste you can collect in bucket with using separate bucket or separate device.

What type of waste is dry waste-

Coal or Charcoal Ash, chicken & Meat big bones, dairy product,pet wastes, plastic cloth & rubbers, inorganic & hard substances, metal glass & electrode, medicine/chemical etc.

3. E waste-

waste segregation
This type of waste is very dangerous and to reuse it you have to process in crusher or shredder and reuse and recycle it. It is very difficult reuse and recycle.

What type of waste is E- waste-

E waste or simply electronic waste is the refuse that is basically a term for electronic products that have become unwanted, non working or in some cases obsolete and have reached the end of their useful life. Because of technological advances many electronic products become obsolete in a few years. E waste are TVs, computer monitors, printers, scanners, keyboards, mice, cables, circuit boards, lamps, clocks, flashlight, calculators, phones, answering machines, digital/video cameras, radios, VCRs, DVD players, MP3 and CD players.

  There are so many waste are harmful waste like medical waste, sanitary napkin, pet waste etc. are not reuse but you can dispose it in your way, to dispose these type of waste so many techniques and technology available in market.
So Segregate waste before reuse it, waste can give us money, so waste material you can recycle and reuse it, before recycle and reuse , you have to segregate waste properly at home and use method of composting, you can make compost of wet waste and you can recycle waste and earn money, if liked this post please share to maximum people.

Carbon Source is need to make Composting | Compost Guide

carbon source

Why Carbon Source is need to make Composting 

Carbon Source is needed for Composting.

Carbon source for composting

      Carbon Source is main Key or first step to convert waste into Compost by using Technology, So carbon Source is heart of composting , when you are ready to convert your Organic waste into compost then you need to add some carbon Source in that, carbon source help to speed of composting , it help to  calculate the C/N ratio of your compost mixture

What are exactly carbon Source:

as definition of carbon source we consider it as brawn material ,it may be dry leaves, straw,  coco- Peat or saw dust etc.

Composting relies on the right ingredients to be successful. Brown materials such as leaves, straw, hay and sawdust are high in carbon and are a source of energy for the compost microbes.

Organic materials used for compost should include a mixture of brown organic material (dead leaves, twigs, manure) and green organic material (lawn clippings, fruit rinds, etc.). Brown materials supply carbon, while green materials supply nitrogen. The best ratio is 1 part green to 1 part brown material.

below are some carbon source you can add during composting.

1. CoCo Peat-

carbon source used for composting

Cocopeat is a natural particles made up of coconut husks, It is a 100% natural growing medium. This cocopeat dried in the sun and processed to produce different items namely cocopeat block, cocopeat briquettes, cocopeat powder etc, Cocopeat decomposes at a very slow rate. When aged correctly, peat holds sodium and potassium.

Coco coir fiber is a natural fiber extracted from the husk of coconut.

Coconut fiber adds air pockets into your medium.
It’s not very absorbent which is good because the growing media needs air pockets in order to provide oxygen to the roots.

Coco husk chips are the slicing of the husk of the coconut into uniform sizes.Whole coconut husk is cut into different sizes, graded, washed to remove salts and excess tannin and dried.Combination with Coir and chips are used in cut flower rose and Gerber production, to provide optimal drainage and aeration. Added to potting soil, replacing regular bark,Coconut Husk Chips also significantly reduce the incidence of Sudden Oak Death (SOD) disease.

2. saw dust:

carbon source used for composting

Saw Dust is very high moisture observing material in composting.Sawdust (or wood shavings) is a by-product or waste product of woodworking operations such as sawing, milling, planing, and routing. It is composed of small chippings of wood. These operations can be performed by woodworking machinery, portable power tools or by use of hand tools. you can add in waste to avoid smell and decompose waste quickly. generally we prefer to add these type of saw dust in composting.
during rainy season you can add more sawdust ,These rely on air pulled with a suction force through piping systems from the point of dust formation to a waste disposal unit. LEV systems consist of four elements: dust hoods at the point of dust formation, ventilation ducts, an air cleaning device (waste separator or dust collector) and an air moving device (a fan, otherwise known as an impeller).The air, containing dust and chips from the woodworking operation, is sucked by an impeller. The impeller is usually built into, or placed close to, the waste disposal unit, or dust collector.
Guidelines of performance for woodworking LEV systems exist, and these tie into occupational air quality regulations that exist in many countries. The LEV guidelines often referred to are those set by the ACIAH.

3. dry leaves

carbon source used for composting

Leaf composting is one of the smartest things you can do for your garden. dry leaves are most important things in composting, if you have idea about composting then you will get good quality compost with dry leaves, also dry leaves are dry waste but it will help for fast composting.
If you haven’t gotten into it yet, or don’t know where to start, this is for you. Get ready to know everything you’ll ever want to know about how to compost leaves so that your leaves decay quickly and turn into beautiful, rich compost.


carbon source used for composting


Throughout history, people who raise livestock and poultry have used manure as a fertilizer, soil amendment, energy source, and even construction material. Manure contains many useful, recyclable components, including nutrients, organic matter, solids, energy, and fiber.

apart from these carbon source you can use branches, stems,  peels, bits of wood,  shredded cardboard paper , corn stalks, coffee filters, coffee grounds, conifer needles, straw, peat moss, wood ash for composting, without carbon source it is very difficult to convert waste into fertilizer, so which carbon you are using for composting and and suggest any good carbon Source for composting in comment section. please share this post if liked to know or who are interested in gardening.
