UK: Smallford nursery confirms waste vegetables are recycled for green energy

Glinwell PLC in Hatfield Road, Smallford, grows peppers, cucumbers and aubergines over 28 acres of land, as well as packing and grading facilities. The nursery has confirmed that the vegetables discarded in the skips do not go into landfill. 

General manager Matthew Simon said: "So far this year we have donated 56 tonnes of produce to FareShare, which has provided 134,838 meals, and a further 21 tonnes of produce locally to the Felix Project.

"Produce that cannot be sold or used for consumption in any way is collected in skips, and then goes off to a bio-digestion plant to produce green energy."
