What happens to food waste in Dorset


Food waste (large version)Separate food waste collections are being introduced across Dorset as part of the new recycle for Dorset kerbside scheme. This new collections means that residents can, or will be able to shortly, recycle their food waste.

 The food waste collected in Dorset is sent to one of two places, an in-vessel composter in Hurn, where it is transformed into nutrient compost, or the anaerobic digester (AD) in Piddlehinton, where food waste can be transformed into renewable energy in the form of biogas and soil improver.
