DWM collects bio-degradable waste to produce organic fertilizer. The fertilizer balances the soil pH, enhances water retention capacity of the soil, increases in the organic carbon content of the soil, enriches soil fertility, increases root aeration and increases crop yield. The group also produces ornamental products from plastic waste including decorative and household items.
