The organic wastes around UTP were converted into fertilizer through vermicomposting. 2.3 kg organic wastes has been put into four different tray. Tray A and C consist 2kg grinded kitchen wastes, 200g dry leaves, 100 grass clippings while Tray B and D comprise of 2kg raw kitchen wastes, 200g dry leaves, 100g grass clippings. Temperature for all tray increase slightly and stabilized around temperature 32C ± 1 C. pH value of tray A, B, C and D increased from 6 to 8.0-9.0. Kitchen wastes in tray A and C decomposed completely after 10 days and kitchen wastes in tray B and D decomposed completely after 15 days. Hence, the size of particles can affect the vermicompost rate and quality. The smaller the particles size, the better. Further analysis on total nitrogen content and organic content need to be done to compare the quality of compost with readily fertilizer
