New food waste video


Food waste (large version)A new video showing just how easy it is to recycle food waste in West Dorset is now available.

It’s a handy guide to the new food waste recycling collection scheme, which was launched in Sherborne and surrounding villages in April.

Thanks to local residents the scheme is proving a big success, with more than 115 tonnes of food waste being collected to be transformed into turf.

The collection of other recyclable materials has also risen from an average of 148 tonnes a month to 158 tonnes and the recycling rate for this area has also increased from 29 per cent to 39 per cent since the scheme started.

The video shows the food waste being taken to Eco-Composting in Dorset and how it’s made into compost which is used to grow turf.

Check out the video here.
