The East London Garden Society is working with The Queen Mary University, Clarion Housing and Re-Direct, a local charity, on a pilot project for bulk food waste recycling. We use the word recycling for this is the nature of the project.
The East London Garden Society for some time now has been wishing for a procedure whereby people were able to get free compost for their gardening purposes. Little known to us the national government is to bring in a law, early 2025, that all local authorities must have a plan to introduce a food waste disposal scheme.
We found that certain machines on the market at present are able to turn food waste into a material readily suitable for gardens/parks, with this information we are to undertake a pilot project, where on an ordinary estate we shall be able to decrease carbon emissions by 48 tonnes per year. plus provide within a 24 hour period suitable material from food waste to be used.
We shall start our programme with a behavioural study to understand the positives/negatives that people have around food waste, hopefully this will lead to a practical pilot project to prove the case, there are openings for as many people to be involved in our project, therefore if you have an interest contact The East London Garden Society as soon as possible, as or success is your success. Our programme will commence 14th January 2023
