As urbanization grips the booming cities of India, the problem of waste is rapidly becoming an enormous, vicious repercussion. In a country as vast as India, with cities as spread out as Mumbai, decentralization is the most effective solution for a fast approaching waste management crisis. Treating the household organic waste at source can help reduce the problem of waste drastically. This paper discusses the research and development of a decomposer designed for city households, which can manage, dispose and utilize the organic kitchen and food waste at the source of waste generation. This automatic, composter ensures easy usage, easy maintenance and user friendly interface. The output compost is free flowing, earthy smelling and ready to use for plant application. The home composter hence effectively replaces the kitchen waste bin with significant value addition.
