Recycling your food waste

Recycling your food waste is a great way to help reduce your carbon emissions and make the most of any food waste that cannot be composted.  

Every bit of food waste that you recycle can be used to make gas to power homes and soil conditioner that is used to fertilise crops. Using food waste in this way reduces it's carbon footprint. The products at the end of the process are very useful too.

Please note that in Gloucestershire food waste that isn't sent for recycling goes to our energy from waste plant rather than to landfill. Sending food waste to be specifically treated and recycled is more energy efficient and more sustainable than sending it to our generic energy from waste plant.
