There are many factors to be considered in waste and water management, a significant one being pathogen content in blackwater and organic solid waste. Centralised treatment options offer better quality control on biohazard than decentralised treatment at domestic level, which needs indepth analysis of safety issues and risks. This paper describes aspects of the risk analysis and safety issues of a domestic waste treatment system under development at UWS. The system uses composting technology to treat domestic wastewater and solid waste. It is argued that biohazard risks can be managed at the domestic level.
