Vacuum cleaner contents

Please place vacuum dust in your black general waste bin for disposal.


All food waste in North Devon is treated at an anaerobic digestion plant (AD). Vegware cannot be treated by AD. In fact, vegware entering a food waste stream destined for AD will be mechanically removed before treatment and disposed of as general waste. As the vast majority of the UK’s commercial food waste is processed by AD, this significantly restricts opportunities to dispose of vegware as intended. The best way to dispose of vegware is to put it on a compost heap and let it break down naturally there. If you do not have a compost heap, it needs to go in your black bin.
