||Measurements in Germany of microbial pollution in the air of workplaces in 2 garbage composting plants revealed the following: the highest number concentrations of bacteria and moulds and the largest respirable dust fraction were observed during garbage comminution, turning and mixing. These findings are in agreement with published results of similar measurements in composting plants in other countries. Full enclosure of the garbage shredders and automation of garbage turning and mixing are recommended to avoid harmful levels of bacteria and mould in these workplaces.
