Abstract
The U.S. has a municipal solid waste management problem of vast dimension. These municipalities are quickly running out of places to land fill MSW (solid wastes from homes, as well as commercial, institutional and industrial sources). The United States currently generates 160 million tons of garbage per year with an expected increase of 20 percent by the year 2000. Yard wastes (debris such as grass clippings, leaves, brush and tree pruning) have been estimated to comprise approximately 18 percent of the annual national MSW stream gross discards. Yard waste generation rates and composition vary by season, year, and region. Yard waste composting has great potential as a MSW management option in the U.S.
