The relentless growth of the global population and economic expansion exacerbates the escalating challenge of Urban Solid Waste (USW) management. This paper explores the efficiency of bio-decomposers in treating organic waste, contrasting with traditional landfill and incineration methods, and emphasizes the social and environmental benefits of composting. The social and environmental advantages of converting waste to compost are scrutinized, underscoring the role of composting in promoting soil health and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. By highlighting specific case studies and providing data-driven results, this study aims to advocate for broader adoption of these technologies to improve waste management and sustainability, using the potential of bio-decomposers and composting as sustainable alternatives that can transform waste into valuable resources.
