Solid waste is proving to be one of the greatest risks to the general public. In order to conquer this issue, an itemized review within the specialized grounds is needed. The study was conducted in a technical campus (7 divisions) including office cafeteria flask and entire grounds. it has been discovered that the considerable measure of recyclable, non-recyclable and inorganic squanders are created inside the grounds. Recyclable squanders have been appropriately isolated and reused. Appropriate assimilation chamber, like Bangalore and indoor composting strategies are embraced with vermin fertilizing the soil activity for snappy disintegration. The outcomes gathered from the tests peformed were issued for proper waste utilization. The task is to make the specialized ground a strong zero waste hatchery.
