Abstract:

The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of simple composting techniques at improving the overall quality of finished compost. Composting of raw organic waste can be used of agricultural or domestic use and compost may possibly increase the risk of disease transmission by a number of mechanisms. The Open pile and the Windrow methods where used in composting poultry, cow and Municipal solid waste for 12 weeks and the Total Plate and Total Coliform counts were determined. The results showed a steady decline in the first seven weeks of composting and the overall quality of the final compost meet the recommended standard by the United State Environment Protection Agency for finished compost. Large scale, wide spread and further researches are highly recommended.
