G. Poyyamoli. Solid waste generation is a major problem in developed and developing countries considering its obnoxious impact on the environment. India is severely affected by improper waste collection at source and mismanagement and various cultural and social practices practiced since the time immemorial. Especially in Indian temples various types of pooja offerings generate wastes such as flowers, fruits, clothes, leaves, coconuts and other food wastes. Among all wastes, flower waste…
