What are the benefits of separating my food waste?

Bio-degradable waste is actually a resource, it can be composted or treated through anaerobic digestion to produce compost or digestate that can be spread on the land, removing the need for chemical fertilisers and can also be a source of energy production. All this will help create and secure jobs, help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and improve our carbon footprint and assist in Ireland’s promotion as a green economy.
