Community Composting and Collection Projects

Commercial food waste composting solutions for global communities

We’re passionate about helping the world’s societies to champion food waste management, through decentralised community composting.

The decentralised composting of biowaste is a method which creates local employment opportunities, harnesses the resource potential of leftovers, and reduces the globe’s pollution and carbon emission levels.

We’ve worked on many projects not only here in the UK but internationally too – in the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, Norway, the USA, France, and even remote island colonies like La Réunion, in the Indian Ocean – all of which have our world-famous, industrial composting equipment, the Rocket Composter, at their heart.

In France alone, decentralised food waste collection projects are taking place in Paris, Lyon, Toulouse, Marseille, and Toulon – collecting the wastage by bicycle or horse and cart from city-centre restaurants, hotels, supermarkets, and neighbourhoods, and converting it into compost.

It is then ploughed, quite literally, back into the community – either resold as a resource, redistributed to local farmers for cultivation, or used in inclusive urban farming projects. The latter of which also helps a country’s unemployed get back into the world of work.

According to Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, around 1.3 billion tonnes of food is lost or wasted every year.

Together, in our communities, we can really help to reduce this number, by embracing the decentralised composting of organic waste!
