The Balangoda Urban Council has launched a programme to turn solid waste into fertilizer, strengthening the ‘Divi Neguma’ programme.
The Urban Council has been able to solve a serious environmental problem by collecting the solid waste in the area and producing compost fertilizer. The Balangoda Urban Council said that there is a high demand for Compost in the market. It is also providing strength to the National Home Gardening Project through the Divi Neguma programme. The Urban Council says that it expects to see the programme spread into other areas as well.
