The current main resource utilization plan for garden waste is composting. The composting process can effectively decompose a large amount of macro-molecular organic matter into garden waste, and effectively kill pests and diseases in the waste to avoid further harm as well. In order to solve the problem of waste of urban green space resources, new technologies for composting garden greening waste and the application of composting products in agricultural and forestry production were mainly explored. The results indicate that mixed composting has been a major production measure in recent years; Compost products are currently not only used in agricultural and forestry production, but also have certain applications in the field of soil remediation.
