Food waste collection

We offer a weekly collection of food waste from all areas of Dorset. We have a variety of bin and container sizes depending on the volume of food waste generated. The containers we offer are:

Dorset Bins - 113Food caddy

Container capacity for food waste collection service.
 Container size Dimensions
 140L wheeled bin  1.07m x 0.55m x 0.48m
 23L container  0.35m x 0.4m x 0.4m

All of the food waste we collect in Dorset is sent to an Anaerobic Digester facility in Dorset, where it is converted into a soil improver and also creates electricity, which is fed back into the national grid.

Please note pictures of bins are for illustrative purposes only. Bin supplied may differ in appearance.
