Northern Ireland To Ban Food Waste From Landfill By April 2015 – 4th July 2014

The Department of Environment (DOE) has announced that it will go ahead with plans to implement a ban on separately collected food waste heading to landfill from its proposed date of 1 April 2015.

The Department published a consultation paper, in September 2013, seeking views on policy proposals for restrictions on the landfilling of food waste and the associated draft legislation.

The proposal is in support of the key objectives in NI’s waste management strategy Delivering Resource Efficiency:
to increase resource efficiency
to reduce greenhouse gas emissions
to significantly reduce landfill
to drive the management of waste up the waste hierarchy towards waste prevention, re-use and recycling.
