Abstract

Composting is one of the most promising technologies to treat wastes in a more economical way for many centuries composting has been used as a means of recycling organic matter back into the soil to improve soil structure and fertility. Purpose of composting stabilization of waste for land filling, volume and mass reduction of solid waste and return of organic substances to the natural cycle. This study was about solid waste generation at wet market Bandar Baru Bangi Malaysia and potential treating waste. The parameters are moisture content (M%), density, pH, temperature (T), total nitrogen (TN), total organic carbon (TOC), heavy metals (Zn, Cu, Ni) and phosphorus (P). The daily amount of waste from the wet market is around 8 tonnes per day, based on an interviewed with Kajang Alam Flora Officer. There is two rorobin placed in the wet market with each capacity of 4-5 tones respectively. From the laboratory results, we note increase in temperature during first Mesophilic phase, phosphorus and nitrogen during composting process. Then, note increase of ph and reduce heavy metal during composting. Average values is moisture content 53.66 %, density 510.48 kg/ m3, pH 8.45, P 189372.7 mg/L, Cu 51.50 ppb, Zn 233.75ppb, Ni 15. 28ppb, T 37.65 °C, TOC 44.75% and TN 3.19 mg/L. The physicochemical properties of organic wastes such as leftovers of raw fruit, chicken, food and vegetables (LRFV) during composting process obtained were in the range of good quality according to the standards to ensure safe application of compost. Bin Composter is one of ways to convert organic waste into valuable compounds and reduce the waste to be disposed into landfills.
