Abstract
There is no doubt that at present a great deal of home, village, and town refuse goes to waste in East Africa. Much cattle urine is also lost. This note describes a simple system of composting whereby all waste materials can be converted into one of the most valuable crop fertilizers. The system described is applicable where fairly large quantities of waste are available. It is not suitable for the small man in his back garden, but if he has a covered cattle pen he could not do better than throw all his waste trash beneath the feet of his cattle.
