'HM Prison Styal in UK has a comprehensive food recycling programme in place that turns nearly all food waste into compost for use in its extensive gardens. Its part of its overall recycling programmes and is very successful'.
'We turn four 1100 litre wheeled bins of food waste into compost each week. It sounds a huge amount however it should be seen against the background information that we have 450 prisoners eating 3 meals seven days a week. We produce approximately 250 to 300 litres of compost a week as a result. Therefore, we are reducing it by volume by about 90%.'
