Of the 7 trials, 4 focus on collection of food waste only and 3 add to existing infrastructure, collecting food waste with the garden waste. One of the food waste only trials will investigate the feasibility of providing a service to flatted properties.
Early findings show that yields from the Scottish food waste
only collection schemes range from 1.3kg - 2.6kg/hh/wk. This is for
all households with a food waste collection bin; kg/hh/wk is higher
in participating households (3.28kg in
Aberdeenshire). Further information will be available once the other Councils have established their set‐out rates.
Data for combined food and garden waste is somewhat limited at the moment as only one Council has started collections.
