The main objectives of this process is recycling of biodegradable solid waste through vermicomposting and to develop awareness among the students. Vermicomposting is a process where worms reared, cultured and their excreta used as a manure for the plants. This is a student participatory activity and helps to spread awareness. Through this activity department has also established a bonding with neighborhood community. Institute had provide a portable pit to the students who were staying nearby college and encourage them to setup a small unit of vermicompost at their home. Students learnt and understood the recycling of the biodegradable solid waste and developed their own vermicomposting pit in their houses and are producing vermicompost and vermiwash at their homes.
