Management of solid waste has become one of the biggest problems we are facing today. The rapid increase in the volume of waste is one of the aspects of the environmental crisis, accompanying recent global development. Most common practices of waste processing are uncontrolled dumping which causes mainly water and soil pollution. Besides dumping or sanitary land filling, the final disposal of solid waste can be carried out by other methods like incineration and composting. Vermiculture is another bio-technique for converting the solid organic waste into compost. Composting is the process which converts organic waste into useful manure by aerobic conversion. The active organisms in conventional vermicomposting are earthworms. The vermicomposting improves the soil structure, enhancing soil fertility, moisture holding capacity and in term increase the crop yield. It becomes an important tool of waste recycling the world over.
