THE ENVIRONMENT When food waste is sent to landfill it soon begins to rot, emitting Methane that is 21 times more harmful to the environment than CO2. In the UK in 2012 over 5.3 million tonnes of food and drink that could have been consumed, were disposed of in landfills. This wasted food equated to 20 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.
RECYCLING Food waste contaminates everything it comes into contact with, rendering it non-recyclable and adding to the mountains of rubbish both here and overseas.
LEGISLATION Landfill Directive - The Environment Agency has set targets for the continued reduction in organic waste sent to landfill
Food Disposers - The Scottish Government has banned disposal of food waste to drain from 2015 onwards, many countries around Europe have already or intend to follow suit
COSTS Food waste is very expensive to your business. Disposal charges and landfill taxation have doubled over the last five years and will double again over the next five.
WASTE OF RESOURCE By discharging food waste to the sewerage system or sending it landfill not only are we polluting but we are squandering a resource that has value for energy generation or as fertiliser.
