Generation of the huge amount of organic waste around the world-wide is a major ecological issue. When these organic wastes are recycled as manure for crop production & are subjected to the degradation & assimilative capacity of soil, pollution of streams & rivers receiving these wastes is reduced to a large extent as compared to the direct disposal in water bodies. Utilization of these organic wastes for productivity process is important for economic & environmental reasons. Vermicomposting may be the viable option to handle solid waste. This review provides a general overview of viability of vermicomposting processes as an ecofriendly approach. The approach is based on that perception that tomorrow’s ecology is more important than today’s economy. The integrated approach of composting and vermicomposting processes provides better results.
