Food waste legislation changes

Changes to food waste legislation

The Northern Ireland Environment Agency have introduced new legislation which means all businesses that generate more than 50kg of food waste must have a separate food waste collection.

This weight will be reduced to 5kg on 1 April 2017, which will mean almost all businesses will need a separate food waste collection by 2017.
