Sending food waste to landfill or incineration in refuse is a huge waste of a valuable resource and national and local government policy is set to change the way we dispose of food waste for the better. The most widely accepted disposal method is now Anaerobic Digestion, which produces methane which can be used for energy generation, leaving a soil conditioner by-product.

Recognising that there is insufficient capacity within London to dispose of all its food waste and that shipping waste outside the region for disposal is less than ideal, Lampton Community Services is exploring the development of a local Anaerobic Digestion plant in West London, able to process food waste from several boroughs and private operators. Not only will such a plant create local jobs and reduce transport emissions, but the power generated would be carbon neutral and more than enough to power our future electric waste and recycling collections fleet.
