Explain about the composting solid waste disposal method?
Composting is a method of handling municipal solid waste that is a biological process that allows the organic part of trash to degrade under carefully regulated circumstances. Organic waste is metabolized by microbes, which reduces its volume by up to 50%. Compost or humus is the name given to the stabilized product. It has the texture and odour of potting soil and may be used as a soil conditioner or mulch.
Composting allows for the processing and recycling of both waste and sewage sludge in a single operation. Composting is anticipated to become increasingly popular as more severe environmental regulations and site restrictions limit the use of solid-waste incineration and disposal alternatives. Sorting and separating, size reduction, and waste digesting are all phases in the process.
