Food waste collected

FOOD waste collections in Wargrave, Charvil and Crazies Hill began this week.

Wokingham Borough Council has provided households with a 23-litre container, a smaller version for indoors and a roll of liners.

Food waste will be collected weekly at the same time as household waste and black box collections and sent to an anaerobic digestion plant, which captures the methane created by the waste to produce energy and fertiliser.

Sarah Hollamby, director of locality and customer services at the council, said that methane was one of the most potent greenhouse gases and the new service would reduce the amount entering the atmosphere.
