My The Keys to a Great Compost Review

Highly Recommended

Recently several visitors of blog have asked me about this ebook, which is being advertised quite widely across the Internet. So I decided to buy a copy myself to find out what all the publicity was about.

Overall my first impression of this book is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

Issues Related to Solid Waste Management

Municipal Solid Waste in Landfills The issue of plastics in the municipal solid waste (MSW) stream became particularly visible in the 1980s. The United States produces about 232 million tons of MSW annually (amounting to about 4.5 lb per day on a per capita basis) containing 10.7 by weight (or 25 million tons) of plastics 47 . This rate is considerably higher than that of most western countries, Canada, or Japan. Since a fraction of the waste is recycled, only about 3.5 lb per person per day is discarded in the United States according to 1994 data. Most of the plastics discarded is postconsumer packaging materials such as bags and empty containers. About 57 of the MSW was landfilled and 16 incinerated mostly in waste-to-energy plants during 1995. In the United States landfilling is likely to remain the dominant solid waste disposal strategy in the near future. Once disposed in a modern landfill, very little deterioration of the waste is expected. Even the readily biodegradable...

Biodegradable Plastics

Since that time, there have been two important developments. First, new plastics have been developed that are truly biodegradable. Second, the use of composting for waste disposal has increased dramatically. Composting is designed to increase microbiological activity and the rate of biodegradation. In most composting operations, the process is managed to assure ample supplies of oxygen and moisture, and temperature may also be maintained at optimum levels. There are also some anaerobic composting operations designed to yield methane as a product. The output from composting is humus, which can be used as mulch or applied to fields. The presence of nonbiodegradable plastics (or other non-biodegradable materials) is undesirable and can render the compost unusable if contamination levels are too high. Therefore, for waste streams that will be composted, use of biodegradable plastics is an asset. Many municipal composting programs accept yard waste only. However, composting of...

Stage III Preparation for growth in the natural environment

Shoots or plantlets derived from Stage II are small, and not yet capable of self-supporting growth in soil or compost. At Stage III, steps are taken to grow individual or clusters of plantlets, capable of carrying out photosynthesis, and survival without an artificial supply of carbohydrate. Some plantlets need to be specially treated at this stage so that they do not become stunted or dormant when taken out of the cultural environment. As originally proposed by Murashige, Stage III includes the in vitro rooting of shoots prior to their transfer to soil.

Legislation And Regulation

The extended product responsibility idea has yet to have any substantial impact on packaging for domestic consumption, although it does, of course, affect companies exporting goods to countries with such regulations. Several states have begun to propose or pass EPR for problematic products such as batteries, and Minnesota has an EPR system in place for carpet. Many states have banned certain wastes from disposal facilities. The most common such material is yard waste. Some states prohibit disposing of recyclables. Regulations requiring recycled content or voluntary agreements for minimum recycled content are common for newspaper.


Aerobic composting of municipal solid waste is experiencing tremendous growth in the United States. The number of municipal solid waste composting facilities has increased from 4 in 1987, to 8 in 1990, to 16 in 1991, and over 100 are currently in the construction or planning stages 7 . It should be recognized that an increase in composting will never be driven by biodegradable plastics packaging but rather by the organic waste fraction of the municipal solid waste stream (approximately 50 ), which through aerobic composting can result in a highly stabilized organic matter for agricultural or landscaping purposes 8 . Incineration remains a viable technology with a lack of public support. Recycling of plastics is a developing technology with tremendous public support. The future increase in plastic items to be recycled will be driven by economics or mandated by legislation. The question of whether plastics packaging should be biodegradable or recyclable needs to be addressed. It is...
