Abstract:  The know-how developed earlier by the authors for resource recovery from household wastes, crop wastes, and weeds was extended to subsistence farmers and householders in rural Pondicherry, India, with an objective of identifying technological, operational, and sociological problems which may be faced when transferring this know-how to similar rural populations in the developing countries. The aim of the study was also to refine the know-how for eliminating the problems. In this paper the results of solid waste management by composting-vermicomposting at 53 sites in four villages of Pondicherry are presented. At all sites the pH, temperature, and C/N ratio were systematically measured for process monitoring and control. The results establish the suitability of the know-how for easy adoption by low-income householders and its propensity to achieve pollution control with income generation.
