One of the agricultural waste is mushroom growing media, where the number of this waste is huge and accumulated after mushroom harvest. This accumulation is caused by using the new planting medias. Meanwhile, the old planting medias have thrown out and been as solid matter to widen the slope of cliff area. Therefore, this research aims to use mushroom growing media waste (MGMW) as a composite particle board added by polyester resin and mekpo (methyl ethyl ketone peroxides) as catalys. Some physical and mechanic tests which are done, namely: density, moisture content, thickness swelling after immersion in water, strength of absorption water, internal bonding, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture and screw holding power. The composition of 75% MGMW + 24% polyester resin + 1% catalyst mekpo suitable to the physical and mechanic tests and accordance with SNI 03-2105-2006 and JIS A 5908-2003.
