1st April 2016 sees the introduction into law for most Catering Waste Producers in Northern Ireland to implement a series of measures in order to comply with the new Food Waste Regulations (N. Ireland) 2015 .
One key requirement within the regulations is that all segregated food waste must also be separately collected for recycling at a registered recovery plant.
Restaurant waste FoodTraps must also be emptied into food waste tankers or containers only and not re-mixed into foul waste tankers or containers such as septic waste slurry tanks.
The waste food must then be sent for recycling at a registered waste food recovery plant. Food waste that is found to be improperly disposed off via slurry tankers etc will become the responsibility of the restaurant operator.
CaterWaste provide documented Duty of Care evidence that catering operators may demonstrate compliance to local authority inspectors upon request. Free Site Assessments are availale from CaterWaste until April Food Day!!
