Local Authorities

Local Authorities - A First Class Partnership

With recycling high on the political agenda and food waste accounting for one third of the average resident’s waste, we understand that food disposal and sustainability targets are a key focus for local authorities.

Maximising the capture of household food is also seen to be a critical governmental focus. Add to this the spiralling costs of landfill disposal, and it’s easy to see why there is a growing need for a greener and cheaper alternative.

Better for the local area and the community

According to WRAP, the UK discards 7.2 million tonnes of food and drink each year (which damages the environment and costs us over £12 billion). However, by recycling your food waste with ReFood, you can:

Reduce food waste disposal costs by 50%*

Divert food waste from landfill and work sustainably
