Residents in West Oxfordshire are being invited to find out what happens to their food waste.

A free tour of the Agrivert anaerobic digestion plant near Cassington has been organised by the District Council with staff on hand to answer questions on how the weekly food waste collection is transformed into fertiliser and electricity.

The plant processes food waste from across Oxfordshire and creates fertiliser for local farmers to use, along with enough electricity to power more than 4,000 homes on an on-going basis.

Cllr Steve Good, Cabinet Member for Waste Collection and Recycling, said: “We know how committed our residents are to recycling and this tour gives valuable feedback on how their efforts are being put to good use.

“It is a highly informative event offering a valuable insight into how much thought is put into dealing with what we throw away.”

The tour will take place on Tuesday 31 July at 10.30am with booking essential.

To book, email Sian Edwards on sian.edwards@westoxon.gov.uk <mailto:sian.edwards@westoxon.gov.uk> or call 01993 861000.
