Maturity and stability evaluation of composted yard trimmings



Maturity and stability evaluation of composted yard trimmings



Compost Science and Utilization 11(2): 96-112



The objective of this research was to evaluate a variety of stability and maturity indices for yard trimmings compost produced in the Puget Sound region of western Washington State, USA. Compost samples were collected periodically during a 133-day composting cycle at a commercial composting facility, showing that indices of compost respiration rate were sensitive indicators of compost quality.
