This study was focused on aerobic composting of the municipal solid waste using the newly developed beneficial microbial consortium (BMC). Also the possibilities of using distillery spent wash as and moisturizing agent were also explored during the study. The obtained humus was characterized for various features such as its chemical composition and its possible effects on enhancement of plant growth. The results have shown that the aerobic composting process was completed efficiently in a shorter period of time (about 25 days). The obtained compost was found to be chemically balanced and biologically stable. It was found that the compost could efficiently be employed as a soil rejuvenator in agriculture. Also the spent wash was found to further enhance the qualities of the compost.
