Tonnes of support for Portsmouth food waste collection trial

on .

Food waste trial webOver 22 tonnes of food waste has been collected so far in the first two weeks of the food waste collection trial in Portsmouth.

Just over 8,000 Portsmouth households started the food waste collection trial last month to try and reduce the amount of refuse produced in the city. Households in Drayton/Cosham, Somerstown, Old Portsmouth, Portsea, Southsea, Eastney and Baffins are part of the trial to see if the scheme works locally. The trial, which started from w/c 16 September 2019, will run for six months. If successful in reducing refuse it could be rolled out across the city in the future.

Waste composition analysis undertaken in the city in Autumn 2018 showed that nearly 40% of black bin waste was food waste. It is expected that a separate food waste trial will improve the recycling rate in the city. Figures currently show that 20% of food waste that would normally go into the refuse was diverted to food waste recycling in the trial area.
