Generation of Organic Waste

This page explains the generation of organic waste.

Generation of Waste

Various types of organic waste are discharged all around us.

These organic wastes are originally produced by nature, such as the ground, oceans and forests. Even though these wastes are a source of life for human beings and animals, it is discharged as being unnecessary for human beings. However, these wastes are a wonderful feast for bacteria (microorganisms), and can be returned to soil through fermentation and decomposition.
