Did you know that over 7.2 million tonnes of food is discarded each year to landfill?
This costs on average £12bn.
Much of this food could have been eaten.
We need to take action now to recycle more packaging.
We need to understand better how to dispose of our food waste in a more eco-friendly way and not via general waste collection.
Increase awareness of ‘use-by’ dates and packaging.
Food Waste Recycling
Anaerobic Digestion (AD) is a recycling method that reduces greenhouse gas emissions at landfill.
AD produces methane which can be used to generate electricity that is pumped directly into the national grid.
ECO Food Recycling uses AD to 100% recycle commercial food waste.
Much of this recycled waste is turned into compost and redistributed via agricultural schemes.
LTP is offering a new food recycling scheme to tenants.
