Food Waste – Collection and Recycling

We are dedicated to recycling your food waste and are working closely with anaerobic digestion plants around the country to help reduce the amount of waste sent to land fill sites.

Food waste is a global public policy issue. The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) estimates that one-third of food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted globally, which amounts to approximately 1.3 billion tonnes per year.*
