A REVIEW ON THE COMPOSTING OF THE SOLID WASTE IN THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES
The growth of populations, high urbanization and improved living standards have caused rapid changes in solid waste generation quantities and material compositions worldwide. Until recently, solid waste disposal has been considered more economical in landfills and open dump sites, and is the most commonly used technique in developed countries. The potential of other alternative approaches, such as the recovery and recycling of resources and their incorporation into waste management, has therefore been scarcely evaluated. Nevertheless, the ever rising challenges presented by the rapidly growing quantity and composition of solid waste in developing countries have led to the search for alternative methods of waste disposal. The paper provided an evaluation of the resource capacity of municipal solid waste materials from cities in developed countries as a strategy for municipal solid waste. Sustainable administration of solid waste. The paper established that high composting potential exists in the solid waste stream from cities in developed countries, using published data on solid waste composition.In conclusion, the rehabilitation recommended. Food waste products and composting and recycling papers for plastic, metals, textiles and others to discover their potential for resource recovery. This would minimize the final quantity of solid waste for disposal to a significant degree and lower maintenance costs. Sustainable waste management in developed nations can be accomplished through this policy. The paper is intended to provide a valuable guide for decision-making on waste management policies in developing countries.
