How to dispose of meat waste

Please download this guide for further information on handling animal by-products and catering waste.  More information can also be found found via this link

Waste food from restaurants and other food outlets is classed as catering waste and this can still be disposed of via general waste and segregated food waste collections. From 2023 new legislation will require businesses to have food waste collected separately.
