Why recycle food waste?

It’s the if law in Scotland if you are a food producing business with more than 5kg of food waste produced per week that it should be recycled. Don’t risk not complying and a £10,000 fine!

Also having it as a separate waste stream will also prevent contamination of other waste helping with recycling of all your other materials
