What happens to your food waste

Your food waste is taken to an In-Vessel Composting (IVC) facility in the UK.

Mixed food and garden waste is composted 'in vessel'. This is an enclosed, intensive method of composting with accurate temperature control and monitoring to ensure the material is fully sanitised before it's matured and screened to use as compost.

This process is used for both your pure food waste and your food waste mixed with garden waste.
