Preventing Food Waste: Community Initiative
How West Sussex County Council is advancing social value with innovative food waste management.
About the Film
With food waste costing the UK around £17 billion a year, it’s no longer enough for waste and recycling teams to just process waste.
West Sussex County Council (WSCC) is taking an innovative approach, working with stakeholders to turn waste into a resource that can advance social value.
A recent community initiative run in partnership with UKHarvest and Biffa resulted in WSCC diverting over 8 tonnes of food waste, and a four-year programme being put in place.
By taking a research and results based approached to resource management, WSCC are leading the way in developing initiatives that advance sustainability, circularity and social value.
