    It is with regret that Sefton will be suspending the Food Waste Collection Service in June 2019. The last week of collections will be week commencing 10 June.


    The amount of food waste collected by the service has fallen from over 3,500 tonnes to 1,200 tonnes per annum, which is roughly 1% of the total waste collected in Sefton. As such, the current service is no longer sustainable.


    Once the service has been suspended food waste will need to be either home composted or placed in your grey bin or black bin bag.


    Residual waste collected in Sefton does not go to landfill, it is incinerated in a purpose-built plant which generates energy from waste.


    Please DO NOT put any food waste in your green garden waste bin as food waste cannot be composted alongside our green garden waste. If food waste is put in with garden waste then the whole load will be rejected from our green waste composting site immediately.


    As you may be aware the Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs (DEFRA), recently announced, subject to consultation, that they will be seeking legislation to make food waste collection’s mandatory across England from 2023. Sefton Council is actively engaging in this consultation.


    DEFRA has said that a food waste service will be assessed accounting for future recycling burdens upon collectors such as Sefton Council, and that it will be funded appropriately. It is anticipated that nationwide collection schemes will also ensure the necessary infrastructure for composting food waste will by then be available to make the service sustainable at a local level. It is hoped that when this legislation has been passed we will be able to reinstate food waste collections across the Borough.

    Disappointing. I hope they get a new scheme started soon.
