The effect produced by adding increasing rates of a municipal solid waste compost on the susceptibility to compaction of three materials of mineral origin was determined. These were quartz sand (85% sand), slate processing fines (78% silt), and commercial bentonite (75% clay), selected due to their highly homogeneous particle size that can provide index information about materials with different textures. It is shown that the reduction in compactability was proportional to the rate of compost used.
