Each year the UK produces over 10 million tonnes of food waste with huge economic and environmental costs.
As a large amount of food waste ends up in landfill and thus emits the greenhouse gas methane, contributing to global warming, action must be taken to improve the disposal of food waste. Also, there is great social responsibility, as not all food waste is inherently bad or inedible, therefore alternatives should be used to reduce waste.
As leading waste management and recycling providers in South Wales, SL Recycling provide a range of services including food waste recycling, ensuring food waste is disposed of in an environmentally friendly way. This guide to food waste disposal outlines some of the best ways to dispose of food waste.
