What happens to my brown bin waste?

When your collector empties your brown bin into the bin truck this is taken to an authorised treatment facility for processing. Food waste and bio-waste is now considered a resource. This type of waste can be processed either at a composting facility or anaerobic digestion facility to produce an end product of compost or digestate that can be utilised on gardens or by farmers on their land. An anaerobic digestion facility can also generate heat and power which can be sold to the national grid.
