food waste management
Food Waste Management

The UK Government has recently announced a new recycling plan ‘Simpler Recycling’ that aims to create a new, simpler common-sense approach to recycling. This includes the introduction of weekly collections of food waste for most households across England by 2026 – ending the threat of smelly waste waiting weeks for collection and cutting food waste heading to landfill.

Get in touch below to find out more about our food waste management frameworks.

What is the new legislation?

In support of Defra, WRAP (The Waste and Resources Action Programme) have released a guidance document for Local Authorities to assist with the transitions. The guidance has been created by WRAP in conjunction with reputable waste product and fleet Suppliers and Public Sector Buying Organisations such as YPO, to assist in the procurement of specialist food waste collection vehicles and waste products and containers in an attempt to provide as much guidance as possible to ensure that the transition to separate food waste collections is as smooth as possible for Local Authorities.
Access WRAP's weekly food waste implementation guidance via the link here. Local Authorities will receive funding to assist with these transitions and Defra are hoping to inform LA’s of allocation shortly.

YPO Food for Thought YPO's food waste management frameworks have been devised to support local authorities on their journey of food waste separation to reduce landfill emissions. Find out more in our latest video.
