The Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF) does not currently record the amount of food waste that is generated at each of our buildings. This is included within our overall land fill statistics. Separate records are kept for all other waste streams that are recycled, for example paper, glass, plastics and cans. Discussions are underway with our catering and waste management providers as to how the DSGF can reduce the amount of food waste that is sent to landfill.
