Holding answer received on 08 May 2018

For the working week of 23rd to 27th April 2018 (Monday – Friday), 4,845kgs of food waste from catering facilities was discarded.

For April 2018, 20,790kgs of food waste from catering facilities was discarded.

Residual food waste from offices is currently captured in the general waste stream and therefore at present we are unable to provide a breakdown of the total amount of food discarded from the Estate.
