WODC Recycling Update

New Year, fresh new you.
Make a pledge to join your neighbors by keeping us busy in the new year and recycling your food waste .
The more we have, the more local farmers can naturally fertilize their crops and we also locally generate electricity from the gases produced.

Don't have much food waste?
Share a caddy with a neighbour - it's taken every week, so it won't hang about!
Worried about the smell?
If you prefer, you don't have to have an inside caddy; peelings, teabags and 'out of date' food can be put straight into your outside caddy for collection. Using your caddy also means you are getting an extra collection of the waste that can fill up your rubbish bin.

Food waste is taken to an anaerobic digestion plant near Cassington where it is recycled into a liquid fertiliser for use on local farm land.

As the food waste breaks down it produces gas which is fed into engines to create electricity, currently enough to power 4000 homes on a continuous basis.
Help us help the local farmers and also generate energy more locally - simply recycle more of your food waste.
