Abstract: Municipal solid waste management has become a serious problem in urban areas and the major portion is organic matter, almost 40-60% component of waste organic matter. As per the Municipal Solid Waste (management and Handling) Rules 2000, many cities are making compost. Before applying MSWC for agricultural uses, it is important to know quality of compost to assess its toxicity. The use of compost for agricultural purpose can be sustainable option of waste disposal. The objective of the study is to check the feasibility of compost produced in Pune city for agricultural purpose. The compost sample were selected from 3 different MSW plants. As per the result C:N ratio, Moisture content, Organic carbon, and pH were not within limits of Hadpsar site compost sample. TO enhance the quality of compost different additives were added in compost. The combination of sludge and rock phosphate with MSW compost gives the maximum nitrogen. Samples have shown the decrease in C: N ratio with maturation period of 30 days. The results show that quality of compost can improve by adding different additives.
