If you run a food business which produces over 5kg of food waste per week then:

  • You must present food waste for separate collection
  • You cannot dispose of food waste in the public sewer e.g. by using a macerator
  • Some rural properties may be exempt from the food requirements.  Use the rural postcode checker for more information.
