Composting of raw organic waste is an excellent example of highly biological processes used for agricultural practices. The Open pile and the Windrow methods where used in composting poultry, cow and Municipal solid waste for 12 weeks and the heavy metals in the finished products where determined using the Atomic Absorption Spectrophotometer. The results showed a steady decline in the first seven weeks of composting and the overall quality of the final compost meet the recommended standard by the European Union for finished compost. Large scale, wide spread and further researches are highly recommended.
