Mixed food and green waste will be treated at Countrystyle’s composting facility in Ridham, where it will be processed into a certified compost product for use as an agricultural fertiliser.

Countrystyle Recycling’s managing director Chris Howard said: “This is a great win for us and demonstrates our continued ability to provide professional, reliable and cost effective solutions for local authorities, both in regards to collection and treatment services.”

West London Waste Authority chair Cllr Bassam Mahfouz added: “Food and garden waste composting is key to achieving our objective of recycling 50% of waste by 2020. We look forward to a successful partnership with Countrystyle Recycling.”
