For this reason, research was carried out on the use of market waste for the benefit of the community. The objective was to determine the quantification and chemical characterization for the benefit of the community. It is based on descriptive methodology; Since the waste generated in the Miracle of Barranca market was characterized and classified, and a survey was prepared, what is your proposal on the use of compost based on market waste? Once the data was obtained, they were processed using basic statistics. It was determined that per day it produces organic waste with 65.00%, inorganic with 28.67% and others with 6.33%, and per month organic with 68.13%, inorganic with 26.63% and others with 5.24% of the total of 10,341 tons/month of August and chemical composition. of the compost has adequate concentration of organic matter, low nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, magnesium and high pH 8.54. In the proposal for the use of compost, 40% stands out for agricultural use. It is concluded that through the catheterization of the waste, 65% organic is produced and when making the compost it has a concentration of nutrients that are favorable to improve the properties of the soil and strengthen the plant. Therefore, the use of compost is a sustainable alternative for agriculture.</p> Miguel Angel Inga Sotelo Ana Cecilia De Paz Lazaro Reynaldo Francisco Cherrepano Manrique Víctor Henrry Morales Pacora Manuel Nicolás Morales Alberto Mario Humberto Taipe Cancho Jorge Wilson Leiva Gonzales César Heraclides Brito Mallqui Yocet Yojan Rosales Depaz Cirilo Mario Ccaira Mamani Copyright (c) 2022 Journal of Energy & Environmental Sciences 2022-10-10 2022-10-10 6 2 12 21 10.32829/eesj.v6i2.176
