Lancashire opens kitchen compost facility in Preston

Lancashire County Council has joined forces with Preston City Council to launch a food waste composting scheme, which it believes is the first of its kind in the North of England.

A facility to process the waste has been opened in Preston.

Lancashire County Council leader Hazel Harding said: "The county and city councils are committed to giving residents of Lancashire more opportunities to recycle as this is extremely important for the future of waste management in the county."

Waste will be collected from 7,500 homes once a week and will be composted with chipped green waste collected from Preston's parks and gardens.

The council plans to use the compost on its own green spaces.
