Background/ Context: Scotland Excel - Environment Category – Organics Framework
Scotland Excel Our organic waste framework is helping Scottish councils meet legislation that makes it mandatory to collect food waste from households and food businesses by 2016.
Designed to assist local authorities in their statutory requirements to collect and treat organic waste separately from other waste materials, this framework for the treatment for organic waste offers local authorities a variety of treatment options for food and garden wastes collected separately or as a co-mingled mix, including anaerobic digestion, in-vessel and open windrow composting.
In the main organic waste is delivered by a council to the service provider’s facility for treatment. However, some councils have a slightly different service model, which is to deposit organic waste at a specific point where it will be bulked then collected by the service provider for onward hauling and treatment. The framework is flexible enough to allow councils to select either or both service models as required.
