Half way through #FoodWasteActionWeek, we have been reminded that the UK produces around 4.5 million tonnes of food waste each year. If you think this sounds bad, think of the total household waste we produce each year - over 26 million tonnes! Trust us; you don’t even want to go into the enormous amount of industrial and commercial waste created. If we tell you that less than half of the household waste is recycled, have you to wonder where the rest goes?
Discover the dirty truth about waste incineration from 8 pm next Monday 8th March on Channel 4 Dispatches.
Our Managing Director, Georgia Elliott-Smith features in the programme explaining how waste incineration goes against a circular economy.
