Mixed food and garden waste
Mixed food and green garden waste is delivered to In Vessel Composting sites in Cambridgeshire and London. The in vessel composting process involves different stages. First, the waste is enclosed and during this time it begins to decompose at a suitable temperature that kills any harmful bacteria contained within the food. Following that, the decomposing material is moved to a process called open windrow composting. This process involves the material being piled in the open air in rows, where it is occasionally turned, to allow heat and moisture to mix through and decompose it to compost. The compost is then collected for use at local farms and horticultural settings.
