Municipal solid waste (MSW) is the waste generated by public. Without significant recycling activity, it predominantly includes food waste, market waste, yard waste, plastic containers and product packing materials and other miscellaneous solid waste from residential, commercial, institutional and industrial sources. Municipal waste needs to be efficiently handled to avoid serious health, hazards to public and also generate revenue out of waste. Composting is nature's way of recycling. Controlled process hastens this natural decomposition of organics. The final product is compost which has an earthy aroma. Composting significantly reduces the quantity of waste being diverted into landfills.

Benefits of composting
- Composting adds organic materials to soils making these soils more productive and optimal for plant vigor.
- Composting improves aeration to the root zone of plants.
- Composting helps sandy soils retain moisture and builds soil structure allowing plants to utilize natural nutrients in soil. This helps to reduce water consumption. In hard or clay soils, compost improves drainage.
- Compost helps reduce topsoil erosion and minimizes the need for chemical fertilizer.
