Cost benefits for separate food and green waste collections

Speakers at a Composting Association seminar have championed the financial benefits of collecting food waste and garden waste separately.

Speakers at the event in Croydon on Tuesday said food waste now makes up the largest fraction of the household waste stream in many areas.
