Kitchen compostable collections

by martinredbond on 19 November, 2007

Attended a meeting with councillors and council officers from the Mid Suffolk and Babergh District Councils to investigate a kitchen compostable kerbside collection scheme. This will not only help reduce the waste going to landfill which is becoming increasingly more expensive for local authorities but will help the Councils to achieve their recycling target of 60% waste recycled by 2015. We are considering a weekly collection alongside the current residual waste and recycling collections for April 2009 but cost is the key consideration. Waveney District Council is currently operating a pilot scheme and councillors will pay a visit to Lowestoft in December to discuss the scheme with the officers there. There will also be a visit to the composting facility in Parham run by Bioganix.
