This section summarises the options available for the treatment of household food waste collected for recycling (‘Anaerobic Digestion’ and ‘In-vessel composting’).

It also includes detailed information on the requirements for the bulking and haulage of food waste (including those detailed in the Animal By-products Regulations) for those authorities for whom direct delivery to a treatment plant is not an option.
