Cornwall's world-famous tourist attraction, the Eden Project, is slashing the volume of waste it sends to landfill by a third thanks to a brand-new composter.
The £200,000 Neter 30 composter, which is the first of its kind in the UK uses food and other waste and turns it into high-nutrient compost.
This will be used to feed plants inside and outside the project's Biomes.
Eden Project waste neutral recycling manager Tobin Thayre said: "As Cornwall and the UK struggle to deal with the huge issue of waste and how to dispose of it, the acquisition of the Neter 30 shows Eden is making a big step towards our aim to become waste neutral.
In an average week at the Eden Project, leftover food amounts to 2.5 tonnes. Previously, this all ended up in landfill.
The Eden Project believes it will be the UK's first composter dealing with food waste on commercial premises that is designed to complete the process entirely in-vessel without further maturation or heat being added to the system.
