Food waste collections on the agenda at Stonehenge

Sarsen Trail competitors heading for Stonehenge

Witshire Wildlife Trust chose Eco Food Recycling to handle their food waste when they held the Sarsen Trail event, a 26 mile route from Avebury to Stonehenge.

In excess of 2,500 people either ran, walked or biked along the route this weekend ( Sunday May 1st ) and the environment was high on the agenda for the WWT as they enrolled food waste collection and recycling specialists Eco Food Recycling to collect strategically placed food waste bins along the route.

Events of this nature are handled by the Ringwood based food waste collection experts on a regular basis and they are used to the demands that high spectator and participant events produce.

Food waste in abundance needs to be recycled and Eco Food Recyling currently have this waste stream disposed of at a local IVC ( in vessel composting ) facility.

Food waste bins can be supplied and collected at times to fit in with any organisation and advice given as to what waste can be placed within the bins.

Eco Food Recycling currently offers a food waste collection and recycling service in Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire, Surrey, Sussex, Somerset, Avon and Bristol whereby all food waste collected is 100 % recycled.

Big push for food waste collections and recycling

Castlepoint Shopping Park in Bournemouth is one of the many clients that have accurate bin weight figures provided by Eco Food Recycling

With the landfill tax increase only weeks away their is a concerted effort from all of the major waste carriers namely Biffa, Sita and Veolia to increase food waste collections and to have them recycled as opposed to being sent to landfill.

Food waste is the heaviest waste stream left in the general waste bin and the impending landfill tax rise to £56 per tonne on April 1st is creating a demand for collections nationally.

Most Hotels, Restaurants and Pubs are already recycling the majority of their waste including glass, cardboard/paper and plastics so it is no surprise that they are keen to have their food waste recycled.
