    Reuse is another waste management strategy for waste that cannot be recycled and helps reduce the amount for disposal (Shekdar, ). Examples of reuse of organic solid waste are composting and vermicomposting processes. Composting is a biological decomposition of organic waste under either aerobic or anaerobic by:   Vermicomposting is a type of composting in which certain species of earthworms are used to enhance the process of organic waste conversion and produce a better end-product. Vermicomposting is a mesophilic process utilizing microorganisms and earthworms.

Vermicomposting is a good technique for recycling food waste. The vermicomposting was done for 45 days in which E. fetidia earthworms were used. There were four substrate prepared of different composition.

Vermicomposting has recently been recognized as one of the most appropriate methods to stabilize organic waste. In terms of a system for waste management, vermicomposting is sustainable, economically viable, and without detrimental effects to human health or to the environment.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the process of vermicomposting using an indigenous species of earthworms Cited by: 5. landscaping practices to reduce waste. Some general criteria to use in selecting yard debris management options include: Reducing or reusing as many materials as possible at home (or on site at public facili-ties).

On-site reuse or composting is the most efficient landscape waste management Size: 1MB. The food waste was collected for a week and precomposted for 18 days prior to vermicomposting for thermal stabilization and initiation of microbial degradation. In precomposting stage, the pile of waste was aerated with the continuous aeration by the fan connected to a polyethylene pipe with pore diameter of cm on the body for airflow Cited by: Vermicomposting (or worm bin composting) has become a popular way to recycle most kinds of food matter right in the kitchen or garage.

The process is odor-free, quick, and provides a high-grade compost that is great for soil. The growth and mortality of earthworms in municipal solid waste with different temperatures (15, 20, 25 degrees C) was studied for 70 days, with different pH values (,) for Author: Roohollah Rostami.

The vermicomposting was done for. that vermicomposting is one of the most efficient ways to recycle and minimize society’s overall impact on the earth and improve our soil.

Our goal is to inform and educate others regarding the benefits of vermicomposting and integrate this form of recycling and waste minimization into household composting and gardening Size: 6MB. Besides dumping or sanitary land filling, the final disposal of solid waste can be carried out by other methods like incineration and composting.

In order to meet the solid waste load, the solid waste from various sources is recycled reuse. One such onsite method of solid waste management is vermicomposting. Vermicomposting. Vermicomposting or Vermiculture is a composting method where worms convert food scraps into two of the best amendments on earth: worm castings, a fancy name for worm poop, and worm tea, a liquid fertilizer derived from either castings and/or the leachate collected from a worm bin.

Vermicomposting is a great way to compost for people who don’t have yard waste, live in apartments, condominiums.

Vermicomposting technique for agricultural solid waste treatment uses earthworm species which need soil as habitat. However little work has been done for its application in community solid waste.

Organic waste and especially fast degradable food waste is a considerable fraction of municipal agricultural and some industrial wastes.

In many countries food waste is a big part of daily produced municipal wastes for an example the result of a study showed that Iran has a potential for production of 4 million tons compost from municipal solid wastes, annually (Faraji, ).
