Organics recyclers are calling for more to be done to improve the quality of green waste feedstock collected at the kerbside.

The call to action this week (November 5) comes in the wake of the Environment Agency launching a consultation on plans to crack down on plastic contamination in compost through the permitting system.

Launched last month (October 21), the 12-week consultation concerns the standard rules for biowaste facilities including anaerobic digestion and composting facilities.
