New Earth wins Cardiff's organic waste interim contract

New Earth Solutions has been awarded an interim 12-month contract to take care of Cardiff’s organic waste.

Around 25,000 tonnes of source segregated garden and food waste from Cardiff will be treated at the in-vessel composting facility in Sharpness, Gloucestershire starting from this week.

A spokesperson for New Earth Solutions told MRW that Cardiff is taking part in an interim contract while a long-term solution to deal with the city’s food waste is found, as there is currently a lack of infrastructure for dealing with organic waste in Wales.

Cardiff Council Cllr Margaret Jones said: “I am delighted this contract will enable us to make further CO2 reductions when compared to landfill, while also proving more economically advantageous.”

New Earth Solutions managing director Chris Cox said: “We continue to grow and add new local authority customers, recycling and diverting biodegradable waste that would otherwise go for landfill.”
