      Biodegradable waste is animal or plant matter that breaks down naturally with exposure to microorganisms, heat, and oxygen. Recycling biodegradable waste into a nutrient-rich, usable material is often called composting. The material created through composting can later be added to soil%(). Pfeffer, John T. (), Solid Waste Management Engineering. Englewood Cliffs, N.J.: Prentice Hall, pp. [This book discussed technologies concerned municipal waste management including the quantity produced by residents, business and organizations; the developing tendency of municipal waste in composition and characteristics].

      The city subject of this research does not have any reverse logistics scheme for biodegradable waste. It goes to the landfill because recycling is considered impracticable for technical and economic reasons. The objective of this study was to refute the objections raised against biodegradable municipal waste recycling. Of the tonnes of waste collected daily, Cited by: 3. one of the most important factors in waste management. Municipal solid waste in Bangladesh contains as much as 65% of moisture, whereas it is only % in India, and % in Europe, making the waste here more suitable for composting. Moisture in municipal solid waste helps quicker and easier decomposition and fermentation.

      Management Of Biodegradable Wastes SEGREGATION OF WASTES Garbage or waste may be in the form of fruit or vegetable peels, discarded objects, wrapping materials, wasted food as household garbage, or discarded chemicals and fertilizers washed into rivers, domestic sewage, etc. These wastes can be segregated into biodegradable and non . Biodegradable waste is any product that can be easily broken down naturally by water, oxygen, the sun's rays, radiation, or microorganisms. In the process, organic forms of matter are broken down into simpler units. The matter is decomposed and will eventually return to the soil. In this way, the soil is nourished.
