4. What happens to your food waste recycling

Your food and garden waste is taken to one of our facilities in Greater Manchester.

The facility is like a home compost bin, but on a massive scale.

The system harnesses the natural composting process to recycle your food and garden waste into compost in just 6 weeks.
