CATEGORY - FOOD WASTE DISPOSAL

I engaged in a wee mission a while ago in complement. To try and get a better structure across the topic from now on:

Sink your waste

Comparison of Carbon Footprint - bear in mind this is from the site of a company that advocates putting stuff in it's products.

Recycling & Waste World - WRAP’s food waste report comes under fire - I do believe Junkkly eyebrow was cokced a while ago in this regard. Mind you, I also had an issue with some aspects of their critic's products (which also apply to any composter), namely the caution on inhaling fungal spores.

Some interesting facts and figures in there. Not least this one - "greenhouse gas emissions from the centralised collection and in-vessel treatment of food waste are greater than those associated with household treatment by a factor of between 10 and 40."
That's a pretty strong case for household treatment of food waste.

I will await any response... if I get it.

This issue seems 'volatile'!
