Cumbria leads way in household food waste disposal Tags:

Published: Wednesday 7th of May 2014



A landmark in food waste disposal follows the signing of a contract between our parent company Lock End Investments Limited (LEI) and Cumbria County Council to help dispose of household food waste from some 6,500 homes across the County. 

The three year contract, which is being funded by Community Secretary Eric Pickles’ ‘£250 million Weekly Collection Support Scheme’, will be delivered by GGS as LEI's specialist subsidiary.

“This exciting announcement is further testament to the fact that more and more local authorities today recognise the financial and environmental benefits of disposing of household food waste at source. We look forward to a long and successful working relationship with Cumbria and its residents,” commented John Cockram, Chief Executive, Great Green Systems.

Councillor Clare Feeney-Johnson, Cumbria County Council Cabinet member for Environment, said: "I'm delighted we have secured funding for this exciting initiative, which will offer fantastic savings for households looking to compost all their food waste at home.

"I would encourage residents to take advantage of this scheme, which will have a really positive impact on the environment and also help reduce the council's waste treatment costs."
