AD sector calls on Council to accept food waste in plastic bags

Lets Recycle http://www.letsrecycle.com/news/latest-news/ad-sector-calls-for-flexibility-on-carrier-bags/   have reported that Anaerobic Digestion (AD) plant operators have spoken out in favour of allowing residents to present food waste in plastic bags in an attempt to increase the waste submitted for collection.

Experts in the AD industry feel  that the requirement by Councils that householders  use compostable bags rather than any plastic bag is unnecessary as AD plants are designed to deal with the removal of both degradable and plastic liners.

This change would be beneficial where householders cannot compost their food waste.
