W Sussex aims to lower food waste

West Sussex County Council is preparing to embark on a campaign to encourage home owners to apply for a free food-waste digester.

The campaign aims to slash the volume of food waste as part of an attempt to meet government targets.

The council has secured £1.5m of funding from the Government for what it

described as the biggest ‘green give-away’ by a local authority. The Waste and Resources Action Programme has handed over £120,000 to fund comms initiatives.

The garden-based devices are capable of ‘digesting’ food matter, including animal bones, into the soil.

The campaign is led by comms head Amanda Aviss.
