ReFood is calling for “rejuvenated government support” in its national drive to nationally ban food waste from landfill.

Having lobbied for a UK-wide ban since launching its Vision 2020 roadmap in 2013, ReFood says that achieving this ambition will be “impossible” without decisive legislative support.

“With UK landfill sites now at bursting point, the food waste recycling expert suggests that national change is essential to prevent a waste crisis,” ReFood says.

“Furthermore, with the greenhouse gases created by landfilling food waste proving catastrophic to the environment, immediate action is essential to achieving impending sustainability targets.”
