This research on the management of organic waste utilization into fertilizer alternation was conducted to study the management of solid waste from fresh markets and from Prince of Songkla University. The aim of this study was to analyze the physical and chemical properties of waste and residues. Findings revealed that, in Pattani Municipality fresh market, there was 2.00 tons of waste a day on average, with the density of 0.70 kilogram per cubic meter. The waste found included 1. vegetable residues (53.78%), 2. fruit residues (19.56%) and 3. paper residues (15.33%), retaining moisture of 86.78. It was also found that in the fresh market there was the waste sorting to feed animals including catfish, ducks, and goats. For the green residues on the University, they were from grass mowing, tree pruning, and landscape gardening. The average amount of the green residues is 300.00 kilograms per day. In terms of management, there were three approaches; fertilizer fermentation, waste dumping in the open space, and animals feeding. Mostly, waste dumping in the open space for natural decomposition consumed plenty of space, therefore the collecting of organic residues from two different sources to ferment together is a practical approach for organic waste management and soil fertilization production.
