The paper aims to provide a series of actual and applicable contributions for the livestock producers to achieve financial savings and contribute to reducing soil, ground and water pollution. The authors conducted a research of primary data sources concerning the management of waste from livestock activities by producers of livestock and on how do the producers from the vegetable sector obtain their natural fertilizers. It was found that most of both private producers in the livestock sector and rural family owners of animals are managing in an inappropriate way the daily waste from livestock. For this reason, it was considered as an opportunity to establish of some common platforms through which the livestock waste to be converted into organic fertilizer used by the large producers or small families involved in the vegetable farm sector. Following some simulations, it was reached an estimated cost of up to 80.000 Euros for such a platform.
