Where is food waste sent?

Food waste is a valuable resource. Just throwing it away is wasteful since food waste can be turned into compost and renewable energy

Westminster’s Commercial Waste Service will collect your food waste separately and send it for composting in an anaerobic digestion facility. This is the most environmentally friendly method of treatment for this type of waste available in the UK. The facility turns food waste into biogas that can go into the gas grid and into fertiliser used on farms. It allows for a closed-loop solution; what starts on the farm gets returned to the farm.
