Vegetable waste is one of the types of food waste that can contribute to leachate production. Different characteristics of leachate produce from a different type of waste. Leafy vegetables waste (LVW) has a high tendency to accumulate heavy metal, for example, Cadmium (Cd). Leachate produced from leafy vegetable waste should be treated specifically alone instead of mix with another type of food waste. Treatment of leachate by using conventional method is no longer suitable to comply with the more stringent discharge standards.
