Excerpt
The economic advantages of composting animal manure, organic rubbish, night-soil, septic-tank sludge, and other organic wastes from villages and small towns has been demonstrated in many parts of the world. Generally, sanitary composting can be done practically as cheaply as incineration, even in small towns, and involves much less capital expenditure, besides producing a fertilizer which can be readily utilized on the farms in the immediate vicinity of the town or village. The sale of the humus fertilizer will yield sufficient income to make the net cost of composting considerably less than that of incineration. The capital investment and operational costs of sanitary composting are somewhat greater than those of the sanitary land fill and the insanitary open dump wastedisposal methods. Nevertheless, the return from the sale of compost may often reduce the net cost to about equal or below that of sanitary land fill. Composting will make possible the sanitary disposal of material such as night-soil, which for public-health reasons should not be allowed in an open dump, or put on the land without treatment.
