The landfilling of biodegradable waste is proven to contribute to environmental degradation. Compost use in agriculture is increasing as both an alternative to landfilling for the management of biodegradable waste, as well as means of increasing or preserving soil organic matter. This research aimed to contribute to the identification of a system for managing the utilization of vegetable waste (agricultural plant-tissue waste) and biowaste (source-separated biodegradable municipal solid waste) composts for sustainable agriculture, with particular regards to nitrogen availability and leaching.
