Abstract:

The proper management of solid waste, the concept of prevent and minimize waste and maximize reuse, recycling and use of en­vironmentally friendly alternative materials.

In the present paper the aspects of urban organic solid waste management pertaining to agriculture application special emphasis to manure and fertilizers are reviewed. The application of organic solid waste materials in agriculture as a fertilizer has been highlighted. The use of solid waste materials as a fertilizer, nutrient supplier, media for nursery, soil amendments, compost etc promoted the use in agriculture as well as solve problem of disposal but also will increase productivity in agriculture. However, negative effects of solid waste materials such as heavy metal level, biological contamination, ground water pollution and human health, must also be taken into consideration.
