Municipal wastes are mainly received from domestic, commercial and contain recyclable toxin substances, compostable organic matters, etc. With the rapid increase in population, the generation of municipal solid wastes increased during last few years. Disposal of solid wastes can be done by methods like land filling, incineration, recycling, and conversion into biomass, disposable into sea and composting. Vermicomposting is one of the recycling technologies, which will improve the quality of product. The present study aims to find out the possibility of utilization of vegetable wastes for vermiculture. In this study, compost obtained from vegetables mixed with cow dung shows higher NPK values. Vermicomposting is an effective approach for nutrient recovery of urban green wastes.
