Local Authorities Webinar Series

Food Waste Collection - 28 June 2022 - 10:00 - 11:00 

Food waste is one of the largest components of the household waste stream and, when sent to landfill or incinerated, emits either methane or carbon dioxide, this is not the best use of resources, such as organic carbon and humus. We need to harness these resources and to reduce GHG emissions and from 2024 England will be implementing source segregated food waste collections.

Featuring presentations from:

Claire Cutforth, Operational Manager Strategy & Performance at Cardiff Council - Hear from Claire as she shares a case study on rolling out city wide food waste in Cardiff, the lessons learned and what the key communication methods were.

Marco Ricci has over 25 years of experience in planning consistent MSW management, designing and up¬grading of collection and transport schemes, assessing recycling facilities (focus on composting), working in multi-linguistic, multi-tasking working groups or projects  both in ´high-´ and ´low to middle income’ countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia. 

Title - How to integrate kitchen waste collection efficiently: practical experience in small, medium and large towns in Italy
The session will focus on how separate food waste collection is introduced in different Italian towns, looking at the choice of tools for convenient collection at households and the approaches to integrate kitchen waste separate collection into a general redesign of the collection of other waste streams.
