Food and Garden

Your food and garden waste is delivered to In-Vessel Composting facilities  (IVC) in the UK. An IVC is like a home compost bin, but on a massive scale. The IVC system harnesses the natural composting process to recycle your food and garden waste into compost in just 6 weeks. The compost produced will be used as a soil improver on agricultural land.
